In moderate winds I use main and poled ... http://www.forespar.com/pdf/F6-Whisk...ing-Jibing.pdf

At the moment i get a jib
105% with LP 680cm and foot 770cm and my budget
me to buy bigger one ; i'm questioning with my sailmaker
because he said me that whisker pole must be no more than LP but reading you and the sizing of forespar i got it must be the foot of jib
