I got Banzai X Pro's 2021 3.4, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and 5.5, with 85kg I can pick the best sail at any windy condition starting from 17 kts. They are very smooth and good to control, yet powerful enough for early planing. Also for safety, in grey Noth Sea conditions the new bright colors work well so you get notified. Great combination with the Custom 4 Pro 2021
I got this little vid from my friend from Wales which is a good testament to the strength of your rigs. It was a light onshore day so it wasn't easy once you were locked in to the wave and very difficult to get back out once you got caught inside. At least a 30 min exerçise. I lost momentum when I kicked off and got caught out by the next one. Everyone thought all the gear was going to be totally destroyed but only a busted batten and a tiny rip in the window. Pretty amazing I say. This is exactly why I love using your gear.
I'd like to add one more question regarding the rigging of the bigger sails (5.0 and 5.3): I'm a bit confused with the outhaul tension. When I try to rig the sail according to the specs, I found the sail quite 'deep'. The sail is touching the boom as far as to the harness lines.
I don't feel it to be much of a behaviour issue, but I'm wondering what's the nominal setting.
Is it ok ? Or should I apply more tension at the outhaul ? Would the sail feel lighter this way ?
Have a nice hawaiian day.
Regards from Marseille.
I got the Banzai X pro 5.5, it's an amazing sail with great performance but few things are not clear to me when it came to tuning:
The boom size according to the chart (also on the sail and the bag) is 170/157 but when I tuned my sail I needed to make the boom 176 (with mast ezzy skinny 400 and extension of 30), is it a mistake? should it be 175/170?
I have banzai for many years. And they still perform incredibly well. Would like to have seen the yellow and blue more for sale.
Our season is almost over now and we have had lots of great sailing all summer at Margaret River.
I am truly loving the Banzai X 5.7.
It is without a doubt the best sail I have ever used.
So good in fact I haven't even tried the brand new 5.7 Fringe I got at the same time yet.
Well done crew.
Sailed again yesterday in pretty solid wind with the 5.7 Banzai X (90kg kiters were out with 7m2 kites, no other windsurfers).
I really liked the stability at the top end of the and it was probably a real solid 22 knots which is quite a bit for a 5.7.
I am yet to see how it performs in the super-light wind but I'm sure it gunna be great given the performance of the previous ones.
And its truly good to see less pink in the sail mate.
I think adding the X-ply to the window is the one smart move.
Another one of the greatest things with the banzai is changing the clews while sailing.
This allows you go out through the current with the sail really full and then depower to ride or simply adjust the sail to changes in the wind.
Just like reefing down the sail of a yacht.
One thing that seems apparent on using the sails twice is that the X-ply window seem less likely to crease when rigging and un-rigging which will definitely help extend the life of the window and the sail.
