Hey guys!

I was watching some videos and I noticed that there are 2 ways to gybe the Laser SB3's Asym spin:

1) Float the clue out to level with the forestay before hauling it in, and releasing the old sheet only when the new sheet is loaded (pulled in sightly); and

2) Yank (Take in / Overtrim) the old sheet first and as the boat enters into a gybe, pull in the new sheet (and releasing the old sheet only when the new sheet is loaded).

Which is better?

Thanks in advance!
