I have. Love them. Moved from North Heroes and Volts (4 and 5 battens respectively) to these.

I find them super stable and confidence inspiring. Rarely did I feel comfortable enough with the Norths to let go with both hands and just rely on a harness when out blasting, but with the Elites, they feel so well balanced and stable that you just want to let go sometimes.

The range is huge. A few days ago I had an epic b&j session on a 4.7 gusting over 30kts. On the MAX setting, it was so comfortable. Never had Ezzy sails before, but the tuning marks are really good for getting it as Dave wanted. If I was on the Norths I'd be on a 4.2.

Easy handling in the waves, but I haven't had too many opportunities in the waves so far. I tried them on my North masts initially, but they didn't look or feel good. So I've gone to Ezzy masts and all is sweet.

Well made, good choice of materials in the right places, and lighter than the Norths.

Now, how am I going to sell my old sails?

I have ezzy elites in 5.3, 5.0, 4.7 and 4.2 and I love them. I use them mainly for wave sailing. I prefer to use them at the bittom of their wind range ( especially the 5.3 ) and change down earlier. Set full they are powerful and stable but remain light in the hands. Rigged flatter in higher winds I find them more twitchy and less responsive thus I change down earlier.
The power and light weight of the 5.3 has meant that it has pretty much replaced my Panther 5.8 as my biggest sail in the waves.
And the other thing that has always impressed me about Ezzy sails is the excellent construction and the Elites are no exception. You can go hard with these sails and trust them to survive. My next sails will definitely be Elites. P.s I rig them on the recomended Ezzy Hookipa masts.
