125 m. Got in touch with istec who were very helpful even though I was buying
second hand and that was at the upper end of their recommended size for catalyst's I and J measurements. Fits well though at first I thought it might be a bit big but even in gusty conditions to 22 knots its been fine.
The surge in speed and apparent wind
pushed forwards on the gusts was sometimes a bit much for the auto pilot in those conditions but having said that it would have been no different on a similar sized assy and the parasailor wing probably delayed the leading edge collapse a few degrees higher.
In 10 knots true it'll give me 6 knots ddw. Its been useful as low as 6 knots tws and on those 22 knot
gusts we were hitting 13s. Lotsa fun😀
I've got it rigged on a 4 line set up with guys on each bow. Like Oz says in theory it can replace all your kite sails
but I would still run a screecher for 50 to 100 degrees in preference.
Came across a lavezzi
40 that was running the next size down 100m I think but he wanted to switch back to a vanilla symmetrical since he reckoned that would be better ddw. I haven't found that at all. The wing makes ddw easy in my experience.
