I've see the New entry Blade pro 2021 very very nice look.
someone knows the differences in terms of power and maneuverability?
Thank

It now has 2 times more low-end while keeping same high-end. Maneuverability also increased drastically thanks to the membrane which beats general physics. Jokes apart (we all know these are repeated every single year), and although these are great sails, I can tell you what I don't like and why I use other sails.. Look at the sail range www.severnesails.com/sails/blade-pro/ and luff lengths.

That entire range could have been easily designed to fit on one mast - 400cm. Instead you likely need 3. Inability to rig 6.0 on 400cm mast is so last year. :)

Beautiful graphics, the S1 pro 2021 returns as I like it, when available?
Will the window be welded or sewn?
In the meantime I have bought the new Enigma boom, ( to be honest it was my birthday present ), tried it on the Garda lake for three days, I liked it very much, practical, it does not deform, graphically splendid, is so beautiful that I put it on the sofa at home .

These pro sails are in dreamworld for most people.
Luckily, the standard versions are now very good and almost equally as lightweight.

How on earth they sell enough of those pro models to keep making them I don't know. Loss leaders perhaps?

I would say the weight converting to swing weight can be noticeable above 5.5m size. Below not really. I was curious to check the prices.. WOW. Can probably get 3-4 other sails for the price of one membrane. But I bet one membrane sail covers the range of 4

I think you might want to offer your services to Ben S. I recently asked him about the possibility of a 6.2 with 400 mast compatibility and he said it's easier said then done when you are trying to keep the feel and characteristics of a sail the same regardless of it being 4.2 or 6.2 .

I total agree, probably the combo of the future of my dreams will be Mako 84 + Blade pro , I've try Mako 84 last year in MRU ohhhh very nice, in big wave is amazing, never try in onshore conditions.
