Aerotech Rapid Fire 7.5

Jun 16, 2009

Luff: 486-490 Boom: 204-207
While the Rapid Fire 7.5 is not the most powerful or fastest sail in the test, it does a great job of doing everything very well. Add to this an amazing feel from the rig where its subtle elasticity gives you plenty of feedback without any hint of instability and you’ve got a sail that makes it very easy to efficiently pass your buddies. This elasticity along with the cutaway clew also makes for one of the easiest-rotating cam sails in the test. As a relatively powerful 7.5 it still takes some effort to move it through a jibe, but compared to racier sails it feels very manageable. While downhauling, keep a careful eye on the looseness of the leech to find your preferred tuning. It may take a few sessions to find this setting but recreating it is a breeze thanks to the Interactive Rig Guide on the foot of the sail. aerotechsails.com
