    iFLY15 - bullshit marketing?

    I write here both as a builder and as a sailor, after a little experience of 25 years in the A class at the highest levels, I have tested the softh wing sails many times as well as Arno Terra and M.M. on his ifat, I think I am sufficiently able to give real results (from my part ). speaking of upwind mode, I can say that the Moth is the best foiler, following the S9 with a good vmg, then class A and Phantom, whaszp, ifat, I have not had the opportunity to compare myself with others foilers. speaking of wing sails softh I think it is fair to specify that these sails have been tested on Moth, windsurf, S9, S1, A cat, ifat, for at least 6 years, but nobody has chosen to use these sails on races , there will be a reason, no ? only ifat has opted for these sails, I think it's for marketing, certainly not for performance.

    Many test was made along last 5 years on s9 , A cat , windsurf , Moth , both foiling mode , never had good results in upwind against classic sails , specially when wind was down 8- 10 knods ,like we have see at Garda lake foiling week 2019 , S9 vs iFat .

    1 - I did not mention insults but to the fact that what you wrote is not true but pure invention. 2- Mikael at first attempted to steal the project by scanning and replicating the s9 equal to how it was mine originally. 3- I never said that the S9 is the best boat on the market but I always said that it was built and designed for: very wide types of sailors, races and funclubs, large range of wind and wave conditions, weight and age of the crews , facilitates replacement of spare parts and their cost-effectiveness, and many other aspects that are not present on most foilers like Mikael boat. 4- it was been shown that the sail currently in use on Ifly is not better than the classic sails (on beach cat), I have tested this sail on the S9 without obtaining same performance than the classic sail, so what I see is only the result of marketing and current trends but which does not have an effective response in performance, so you cannot say that the S9 is old or worse finished than ifly because it is not true. 5- I add that the S9 was the first of its kind so it is logical and normal that all the most current projects have taken their cue from S9 trying to improve some micro gaps, but do you think really they managed to make a better boat? ;);););););)

    Probably he can not reply to you Martin. but I can : - S9 , much more performance on races specially in upwind and all conditions when winds are down 10 knods , also S9 much more better when you thake the sea from beach where waves are big , The jib help you without push down rudders . -S9 its about 20 kg less. -much more building tecnologies using autoclave for all carbon parts. I prefer stop me here and not go on because there are too much bad things about this topic.

    30 mph ? Seems to hight for me - could it be true if the boat had a different angle from the current direction, but not more than 90 degrees.

    I'm glad somebody finally writes about this topic. to the technical aspect of question "sails" I would like to add that wing sails have never proved to be performing upwind, and was for this reason that I have not adopted these sails on S9.

    14' Stunt S9 Foiling Cat

    I will accept the challenge when I get results from the tests. the S1A is a boat totally different from the actual A. it's a new born so it will be difficult to get 100% performance in a few months, I remind you guys that the current A cat has 50 years of development improved by best sailors in the world and by best designers and sailmakers in the world. strong work to have a fully new boat ready in 5 months , but firsts test are wery wery interesting .

    V1 , V= Valerio is my brother , 1 because was his first creation, my name is "Michele". the S9 has been designed entirely by computer also by specialized engineers, the technology I use in the hulls is infusion epoxy of resin with a vacuum bag "not by manual impregnation as you mean". all the carbon parts are built in autoclave at 120 degrees , 6 bar pressure, it seems to me that no manufacturer in the A use autoclave building A cat , only prepreg in vacuum bag and ovens for cooking. so it is clear that you write here only to denigrate a brand, so it is clear that you guys are afraid of this brand, you guys are probably builders or businessmen with competing brands;) change forum

    Yess. But why you guys do not write about S1A but only about Bimare and A cat foiling ? This forum its only about Stunt garage production , S9 and S1 . strange

    It is my opinion that you guys write an exaggerated amount of falsehoods and half truths, always referring to the past. you are and have been, now as in the past, very offensive towards Bimare and S9, why ??? Are you afraid of this boat and brand? ;). however, this is not the place to discuss about A cat, please create a new topic, so you will not make shitty figures.
