[/quote]ST and STX are nominally the same sail area. The ST has a longer foot, the STX a little more area up top. [/quote]
Is it correct that in light air the STX is superior with its extra area up top where generally there is more air? I would assume if Hobie doesn't make the ST anymore and everyone wants the STX there must be good reason. But all that said, per our conversation earlier, I am going to try more mast rake, and more spreader rake and see what happens. If it still doesn't feel right I'll take you up on your offer of the ST main loan to see if it is a sail cut issue or have I just been away from the boat for too long.
