What color spinnakers are available for the FX One?

I have the Red/Sammon color, is there a blue spin available?

Should the sail cloth be the same thickness/weight as a Tiger spinnaker?

Thanks

Is there any NOS of the yellow available? I like the yellow and mine probably won't last the year with out major failure.

Are you using the 'trompette' or what normal person might call a tube or do you use a sail sock for your spin?

My tube has some fractures and I am about to chop off the body and attach a lightweight sail cover to the mouth of the tube.

This snuffer is verry low profile and works great.

Thanks for the information on the SNU. It looks very state of the art, it is always amazing how somebody can take an idea that has been around a while and find a way to improve the design. These guys/gals need to get their product showcased on some of the cat sailor web sites! Thanks for the link!
