Hey Guys
Was just wondering what type of battens everyone was running. I have the sandwich type which I have now snapped 3 with one putting a hole in the sail. I realise they are good but would like to continue sailing after I have accidently capsized. Last capsize cost me 2 battens in one stack, one second from the top and the bottom one (may have been me landing on it) also how long should my tiller extension be (also broken in capsize and lost forever)

I've never had a problem with the stock battens. I've had my boat over about 6 times, last time hard enough to shoot my crew through the main and never lost a batten.
