In good winds, 2008 10m and 12m Nemi HPs on the AA setting and 4th and 3rd knots up, respectively. They boost awesome and loop well.

@ John thank you for the tip.. you are right the 4 might be too small.. I think going with a 5.5m 7m and a 9GP will be perfect! :) Can't wait to get them!

7m or 8m TS to replace a 7m 08 HP?

With the old Taboo you would have needed a 8m, but the TS has a lot better low end so I would say 7m too replace you 7m HP I think... I haven´t tried them back to back, but from what I recall, that´s my advice ;)

Do you think that the 7m TS would have the same high end as the 8m taboo. If so I would trade in my beloved 8m taboo :-) for a 7TS. The 8m taboo is great but not much of a jumper but the TS is.

thanks
Jules

@jumarcil: Yes that could be a good comparison. There is quite a bit of difference in the low end and the TS is also a better jumper, compared to last year. And you shouldn´t really worry about high end on this one ;) So I would chose the 7 TS to replace the 8 Taboo. :)

Agreed, the 7m TS jumps hella good.
