Fast, light, good looking and a well made blade that reduces the noise and vibration when planing. No need for sanding the trailing edge anymore, this is good-to-go straight out of its plastic bag. When foils are this good I would recommend changing foils long before changing sails for the performance difference ( including rudder blade). The surface of the blade seems hard and more scratch resistant but avoid dents and damage as they appear harder to repair. Watch-out for how you place it on your boat on the way to/from the water and when the boat is ashore keep it in its padded bag as much as possible. I store mine upside down in its padded bag to avoid damage to the leading or trailing edges or the blades tip.
