Loft Switchblade 7.2

Jun 17, 2009

Luff: 480 Boom: 213
Built to complement their Blade race sail, the two-cam Switchblade is a more user-friendly version that can be rigged on either the Loft RDM mast or—with a quick switch to larger camber inducers—a standard diameter mast (SDM). Proper cam choice is necessary for a smooth rotation during transitions. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the recommended Loftmasts RDM 460 for the test and found the Fiberspar Radius RDM made it flat with little power and too much elasticity. We suggest using a Loftmasts RDM or at least rigging it in the shop with a different brand to ensure it looks correct when fully tuned. Rigged on an SDM (tested on a Neil Pryde X6 460) with the proper camber inducers it became a rocket with a moderate draft depth that perfectly balances power and slippery efficiency. loftsails.com
