Do you think that the new hyde sail with the top square is really better than the older design ?

thanks

Gilles

The 'new' Hyde isn't that new now. My experience in simple turns is it provides more power in medium/ light conditions and depowers in heavier by blading off. Kicker control has more recognisable impact as well. For me, yes a better sail. I'm sure there's far more technically minded individuals who can fill in the huge gaps I've omitted.

Thanks for sharing your experience Steve. I'm also wondering about this new Hyde.
