For this season I am thinking about getting a new spi for my Tiger. Anyone knows what are the differences in between the Hobie (new cut) and the Ullman F18 spi with regard to speed downwind? I heard the Ullman spi is faster, but needs more exact trimming, whereas the Hobie spi is forgiving a bit more. Any personal experiences?

So is the Glaser more like the Hobie "old cut" or more like the one with the longer luff? Anyone knows the price for the Hobie spinnaker in USA?

the new spin is verry nice but you have to move the sheet angle forward "Surf City Catamarans set me up with a verry nice set up and i will have pics soon. the new spin is about $900 i think.
