MULTI-TASKING HIGH ASPECT POWER ANGRY 5 BATTEN SET UP

Designed for:

Power to plane, hit a lip, or a ramp in the lightest conditions and ready to challenge even the toughest situations. Blasting for bump and jump conditions, up to trying out the basics of freestyle. You won’t find anything else out here, with more control, wide wind range, and power.


The Tests on Magazines say:

Well-made and eye catching. Offering an abundance of power and practicality over a wide wind range, it is a true all-round contender. Particularly in onshore conditions and small waves, to use the power of the sail in the surf and jumping. Really good in Bump and jump also. Constant dependable power across an impressive tunable range and marries it with a degree of handling balance that is helping to redefine expectations for modern ‘power wave’ sails.


Its Character:

A powerful masterpiece and a symbol of control. Using a rich forward positioned profile for great drive mixed with good skin tension, the SPY is a powerful yet extremely controllable sail which ensures you stay on top of things in the widest variety of conditions and range of winds. The leech falling away smoothly down to batten four, whereas both it and the bottom batten retain plenty of rotation around the mast. Up-to-date detailing, and the upward geometry of the battens themselves also give an idea of the sail’s intended performance credentials High-cut foot and high clew eyelet positions give the sail a distinctly beefed-up wave specific appearance. Undoubtedly the right choice for many and most.


What’s New for 2022:

The Spy is being delivered with a new cleaner design, offered in 2 versions. The yellow which will deliver a more direct feeling. The black a softer and forgiving feeling.


On the Water:

Spy is fast, efficiently translating the extra power from gusts into more speed. Whilst always balanced in the hands, as it gathers speed, the Spy feels lighter and lighter, helping to inspire the user to try new maneuvers or drop into the next set of waves. The Spy generates a good deal of bottom end grunt. The center of effort is located high and forward in the draft, its power amplified by the high position of the clew, offering the rider plenty of useable feedback. It is a real powerhouse of a sail, giving even to the heavier or taller rider the impetus to pump and release their board onto the plane early. It has an impressive all-round nature, happily fulfilling diverse roles, from high wind blasting engine, to marginal wind powerhouse for the opportunist. In transition the Spy retains its power and drive rather than going neutral in the hands, yet its stability is unwavering, allowing the rider to rely upon it and reposition at will, the battens rotating positively around the mast. A dependable power source with a wide tunable range. It may not go as neutral in transition as the Salt Pro, and nor is the power as progressive or forgiving, but its stability and appetite is never in question, and the more energy you put into the SPY, the more performance it willingly returns.


Developed and Designed By:

The Point-7 Black Team. A team of professional sailors and designers who have proved themselves by designing the winning PWA tittle sails in Slalom, Waves and Freestyle.


Development Target:

Targeting an ideal blend of measured power and balanced handling. Assuring an efficient energy to the board, even with a shorter boom length, making it shorter than what you would normally expect. Delivering power efficiently to the board, the Spy remains balanced in the hands with its short boom length making it feel smaller than its quoted area. From light wind wave sail to high wind straight-line blaster; The key attribute is the Spy’s low focused power position, which provides constant usable power without pulling the rider on to their toes yet always helps to pin the board down in extreme conditions and retain control.


Rigging:

The Spy is straightforward to rig, requiring an easy amount of force to counter its luff curve to set the rotation of the profile to obtain a slight loose leach which falls to the front point of the first top mini batten. Playing with the outhaul on the higher ring, will boost up power or increase control but do give a good outhaul tension until you find your perfect performance. Tighten the bottom and top batten, but just remove wrinkles on the other battens without overtightening them. If the wind becomes increasingly severe, the Spy can be retuned with more tension, increasing the twist in the leech without losing much shape in the draft. For wave sailing use the lower ring and decrease the downhaul by 2cm from max specs setting.
