I take it the racers can jibe the Spotz 2,as otherwise I don't see how they could win many races.
Cheers for the tips advice on straps,something for me to consider.

:lol: I thought I was a racer :cry1:

I take it back. I did land about 10 foiling jibes on the spotz 2. Just the crashes were so bad when I didn't land it, I gave up on it!

Guys better than me were definitely foiling through jibes on spotz 2 no problem back when they were a competitive foil, so it is definitely possible!

Hey Dave
That made me laugh :) ............. and sorry no offence meant .Ok so now I know it's not the easiest foil to turn I won't be so demoralized and a bit more persistent whilst trying.If I can find another foil with Tuttle box that does go round easier I suppose I could always add that to my quiver.
