Has anyone had any experience with the Balogh Batwing Sail Rig? It comes with up to a 38' sail and two outriggers.

They have a rig for "hardshell" kayaks but I am uncertain if they would work on a Hobie.

Not cheap, though.

Hi. I sail the 32exp batwing on my Alantic Feelfree kayak and was shock by it performance!!! The kayak sail all points of the wind and I was easy sail to master. The outriggers survive 30 knots winds when I reef my sail. The 32 reefs to 28-24-20 sq ft. The outriggers have made the kayak very stable and is well made. This year at the Fl. watertribe 1200 mile race. The 38exp. with out riggers on Krugger kayaks took 1st and second place. That should be enough to convince you what you would be paying for. David
