Prices look a lot better then the retarded prices some of the bigger brands are trying to charge this year.

One of the better designed sail on the market, and very user friendly
However, the longevity of the product is its Achilles heal. The production group needs to do some serious work in this area, to reflect the technology gains.
(You could have told me me I spelt Achilles wrong guys) its now fixed

Hi Mineral Loft have move to a new Production facility for 2010 so Im looking forward to seeing the new line of sails and how they look. Personally Ive never had any problems with my sails the 8.5 being 2 years old now and prob my most used sail as well. Hopefully my new Blades turn up next month.

Maybe I just got two duds on the 08 Loft 02'S I was kind of hoping that they would run 3-4 seasons at least.
Anyway the design is tops, I can vouch for that
Be keen to see how the new ones stack up, in material wise.

I wish they'd publish the weights of sails.

NotWal, they feel lighter than the NP Hellcats. I switched this season to NP's and the NP's do feel heavier. I haven't verified but the Loft felt light on the hands.

woohoo Santa come early this year just unwrapped a new loft 2010 5.2 Lip wave and O2 sail today. First impression wow these look pretty cool. The finish & quality is impeccable, even comes with a quality assured label on it.
They have really done a great job this year.
Hopefully I post some pics tom.

Looks great!

Try something for me: with the sail in the bag, pick up the bag by the handle and tell me if they've figured out that the handle belongs above the centre of gravity of the sail yet.

My 07 and 08 blades aren't

It seems like a piddly little thing, but it's annoying when you've got a handful of sails and one of them is determined to ram itself into the ground at every opportunity...

Hi Scully have a read of some of the Mag test reports. www.loftsails.com/tests.php

Im not an expert wave sailor but the lips waves feel great and have a super range.
Ive use the 5.2 from 20-35 knots.
