What is the most affective way to rig a barber hauler on a new tiger chute?
Switching to the 2007 blue cut spin for next year any suggestions?

Spinnakers don't use barber haulers.

It's one way of dealing with the difference in cuts. The newer cut is slighly flatter and requires the relocation of the spinnaker blocks. Some have added a barber hauler instead.

It's not the hard to relocate the blocks and avoid adding complexity to the deck.

you can re-locate to the tramp grommet forward for the tramp bungee, just tie it on with spectra. (instead of calling it a barber hauler, try saying tweak-er block, that's what it is....the other names refers to going outboard which isn't what you want to do) Basically all you want is to move it up forward about a foot or so...

Is the 2007 Red Spin the older cut and the Blue the new F18 cut? Or can you get the F18 cut in Red. The reason I ask is that my new Red Spin has a much longer luff than my old Red Spin. Suggesting that its the newer high aspect F18 cut.
