This test quite accurately reflect my Experience with the Fire I would think even more so in 4.7 conditions.
Here is the Translation:
The first impression
Compared to its predecessor was in the 2011-Fire in the bottom of the sail shape revised, changed the Minibatt and batten tensioners. The Fire has six slats, which are all sewn on one side of the sail. It also has four Minibatt, which are filled with a small round bar. The bar ends are protected on both sides by Lederpads. The sails are three different types of X-Ply sail installed and only the window is made of monofilament lm. On the Vorliekbahn two fingers is sewn Dacron. The Achterliekbahn is protected by a very robust Kevlar thread and four fingers broad Dacronlage. The complete Unterliekkante is protected up to the two Achterliekösen by a rubber lip. Unlike many other sails the leech is not issued, but tapers towards mast so the sail is at the top of increasingly narrow. Very strong, this is from the fifth bar. The lightweight mast protector can be solved far from the sail to allow good access to the triple role trim. The mast is held by a pin in the sail and this area is very well protected by leather. Like all sails from Hot Sails Fire also has a vario, if the mast should be smaller than 400 centimeters.
Rig and settings
The Fire has always been a hardcore wave sail. The only sail with six slats critics always try again the heavy weight into the game, only in reality you realize it is not on the water. The sail sits comfortably in the hand and gives impetus of the rider to quickly and accurately. There is sailing, which used to plane as the Fire, trimmed properly but you can adjust the wind field down considerably. During maneuvers do not need much power to tell the Fire, where it's at. It responds directly to impulses. Developed as a side-shore sail for use in Hawaii, and the surprise on the propulsion shaft. Especially the acceleration is explosive, the bottom turn, it is automatically set to "OFF". Really in his element is fire in high winds. Through the six bars of the pressure point also deviates from the strongest gust an inch to the side. Also the upwind properties are particularly noteworthy, what is just in districts with lots of flow advantage where it otherwise has to ride a wave problems, come back to the peak.
Highest quality materials and workmanship, festbetonierter pressure point, endless control.
Low wind performance.
