Topic: New Superfreak 3.7 strange loosens over the top Batten

Hello Jeff  i picked up few days ago  my new SF 3,7   and there is a very strange loosens over the top batten (I hope UWE will post The Photos)   I riged the sail with a 340 Goya 90% and a 370 Monster Mast, with booth mast the sail looks pretty much same .
Wenn i put the mast in  without downhill tension this area is flat and tight wenn i tight to the recommended tension  it gets loosed  i also try to play with button tension  and down/outhoul  no result.
all my other Superfraeks  are tight in this area 
do you have any advises our tips
Best regards from Germany
Stephan

Looks strange to me too, though may not affect performance. I'm sure Jeffrey will respond if he sends an E-mail.... Maybe he already has?

Yikes, that is pretty loose.
It looks like a mis-taped sleeve at the very top. Where is this sail now?
You will not damage the sail by using it, but that should be fixed eventually.

Sail had mistape (not mistake!) and was sewn incorrectly. Going to my guy in the Netherlands for a quick out patient surgery.
