I discovered a brand new Sailworks two-sided Adjustable Outhaul in the bag for the 8.6 NX I just bought. I'm already using a one-sided Sailworks AO with my 7.5 Retro. Given the size and nature of an 8 ...

The 114 Futura is your biggest board? Get a bigger board first.

The Futura 114 can take up to 9.0.

Great info so far. Thanks.

So... based on the discussion so far I can conclude that a 7.8 NX (or any cammed sail) would be pointless as my next (and biggest) sail above a 7.5 Retro. Correct? Sailwo ...
