North have a habit of putting those little reinforcement dots on the end of their battens so it could well be one of theirs I guess. There's a bucketload of battens on there! Looks like nearly 30 on the leading edge! Even with them there the profile looks a little inconsistent (flat in some sections, curved in others).

Interesting that there aren't any battens on the TE.

My first thought was those poor seamstresses must be rolling their eyes on that one!! :lol:

The tip reinforcements also have a north style to them

and the ribs too (as far as i can see from this picture)

I think these seamsters don't really care what how many battens (or bribble/line attachements) they have to make.....

Maybe its the 2008 veags proto, or a new cross-over.

no center strut...

yeah, tons of battens...but are there really battens inside?

I think there are some designs having this, but no battens?
Does that make sense? Maybe then it does not flutter?
