I'm a fan of these sails, I relly love them, I've seen some in the photos in Margaret River there are differences with 2018 models?
Thanks

They are great sails.
The 2019 model is definitely an improvement over the 2018 model, I've noticed that the wind range has increased even more.
However the feel remains the same, I have a mix of 2018 and 2019 sails at the moment and can easily switch between them without any fuss.
If you can find a good deal on any of them I would go for it, especially since they are very difficult to find.

Thanks eazy, I know is very difficult to find them. Now I've a S1 pro 3.6-4.0-4.4 2118 and 5.0 Blade pro, do you think that in the future will be difficult find them?

Yes, unfortunately I think it will get harder to get them, only a handful of new pro sail came on the market this year and next year it will be even less.

Rumour is the Chinese company that supplied the membrane material to Severne and Avanti went bust. Avanti found another supplier in Italy. I got a set of Avanti Echos for bump and jump. Once you go membrane, there's no going back.

We hope we can still produce, I have no intention of going back to the monofilm I total agree with you once you go membrane, there's no going back. Going back to the monofilm would be like buying a car without an electronic control unit

Fingers crossed they can sort out another manufacturer or Ben can work his magic with traditional sail materials to achieve a similar weight and feel.
