I am told that there are now 3 jib styles for the Tiger: plain, bi-radial and fully battened. Which is the best match for a new STX main?

The newest jib style is the fully battened so I guess that would be the best match.

The STX has 2 jibs. The Furling and Battened jibs are your choices. both are Pentex cloth same as the mains but one furles and one has full battens. For off the beach fun sailing I recomend furling. For racing I recomend battened. Also when I distance race or if its honking off the chain I put the furling jib on.

Hope this helps.

There was an older cut jib. Had 3 small verticle cut battens in it like the H-20. Available in white or Yellow. That was the older or pre STX sails.
