Aww man...i preferred the look of the Evo 9 to that to be honest.. :(










+1, completely missed the mark IMO









It looks like a freo dockers womens afl guernsey...








get your evo 9's while you still can...





I wanted one but i was told they werent available and had to wait for the Evo X. I'm getting one as a warranty replacement/upgrade and to be honest i'm not keen after seeing that pic of the new colours. Its the drabbest looking sail ive seen in a long time. :(




Maybe they'll have more than one colour option? all sails look better in the flesh pictures sometimes don't do them justice.



I think they usually only come in the one colour option though. I think they will lose sales because of this colour selection.

We do not realize this picture but the panel that is crossed by the wish is huge, it's quite impressive in real life."

Sorry Choco i'm not really following that quote. Is it saying there are other colour options coz that seem s to just be talking about handling characteristics to me.

If you are buying a NP RSR for the colour you are buying the wrong sail!

Of course youre not buying it just for the colour, but if it looks good while going fast its better than going well but looking like a box of turds..

Errrr, youll have to forgive my ignorance im not completely up to speed with the No Pryde range of sails, isnt that a pic of an RS?

Are the colour schemes the same across the range each year? I thought you ordered an evo maddy...

Doesnt matter, i wont have to look at it when youre behind me anyways.

Haha i definitely ordered an Evo Spooky, but if it looks like that i'll wish i didnt.

Oh really? How did that work out for you last round of the slalom series?

Is it unikely that the Evo is the same as the RS.

I like the pinkness. It also provides a point of difference to other brands:
NP - pink
North - white
Severne - red
GA - pastel
Point 7 - black
Avanti - yellow
Loft - white / orange
Gun - red / blue
S2 - red / blue
Maui - Grey
KA - yellow / red
Simmer - lime green

So, it's a sail will BRUTE FORCE and easy handling? I think this it's what every sail try to achieve? Evo 8 is an easy sail to handle, specially in the top end...less brute force to get up and go. For those who think they change sail just to make money, what I heard from pro sailors is if they can't improve something on the sail, they keep the same sail and not creating another sail in the catalogue, but hey...maybe NP do a lot of R&D.

I'm personally waiting for the new Severn, was disappointed with the durability of the Evo8, maybe all slalom sail can't last long....but will see.

I have be known to buy & sail outrageous coloured sails. seriously they have gone a bit wild in choosing their colours.

I like outrageous colours, its the decidedly drab looking mauve coloured thing in the earlier pics that concern me. I much prefer the wild colours of the Evo 9 at this stage.

Interesting new concept called Airflow Batten Layout. Looks familiar, remember it was used on speedsails 30 years ago.




Here's ITV's speedsail from 1988/89/90

Yes, but also the other way around ... I remember someone was using downward oriented battens in order to get some upward lift from the airflow following the battens. Not sure, but I think he was Barry Spanier himself (at that time, head of neil Pryde R&D).

I got no problem with the bright pink and black, it's the dull and drab looking purple that makes it so uninspiring IMO.
