29er and Tasar jib battens

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the batten material in 29er and Tasar mylar jibs is the same? Tasar jib battens are not available in the US, 29er jib battens are. I am hoping we can make Tasar jib battens from 29er batten material.

Thanks for any info.

Even if its not exactly the same material it cant "not work". Hell you can even use thin strips of wood to make battens.The only real issue that might arise is if your're racing in a class sanctioned event--depends on how strict the measurer is---whether he/she demands "official" Tasar equipment.

Yeah, I'm sure they're just pulltruded glass battens. It's Permex here in OZ, I think Sailbone did similar in Canada, take your pick ;)
