Five Things About Ezzy by Dave Fimmers
Submitted By Dave Fimmers
Infinity (6.5 2009 and 7.5 2010):
- Having cams that are fitting for a variety of masts is really neat as it ensures good rotation regardless of mast diameter
- The fact that the sail is not very mast specific is a great boon. I am a heavy guy and I have experimented using the 7.5 on a 490 SDM mast after having read something about Dave White in the UK and his quirky stiff mast rigging… I went back to the 460 SDM Ezzy mast though..
- The infinity has a nice stable and forward draft which helps to keep my big freeride board in good pitch without tail walking in gusts.
- The build quality = like no other
- The infinity tunes well with a variable outhaul which I have learned to like on my old school raceboard when beating upwind I can flatten the sail easily point more, at the upwind mark just slack the ropes off, yank the mastrack back and power away with a deep deep drafting sail that stays in shape well and also gives the sail a big wind range (I have a 6.5 and a 7.5 but really they are too close in size)
Panther: (5.2, 6.0 2009’s, my new 6.9 is still on order)
- Positive feeling in the bottom end
- Build quality
- Easy to rig, easy to tune
- Massive wind range
In general about Ezzy sails:
- No need for gazillions of pounds of downhaul (I have back issues)
- Well built and really nice looking sails
- Honest price levels in comparison to other brands
- The Ezzy company seems to put people first with regards to manufacturing and that counts for something imho.
- So far any question I have had has been answered by the folks at ezzy, yourself and David included.
