Why put any extra holes in your sails.
We have the same setup with EZ Jacks as T37 does. Advantages of EZ jacks is that they retract to the mast vs. lazy jacks.
Two years ago we had similar difficulty with our NEW Quantum main with full battens. It took 11/2 years before their were fold memories in the sail. You couldn't just drop the sail into the jacks like Chuck said because it was so stiff it would stand upright.
It is a two person job for a while with lowering the halyard in increments and putting the fold in the sail as it comes down. Shawn's method works to a T.
Now 2 years later I can just drop it into EZ Jacks in one drop and it flakes really well. I singlehanded a lot so this makes it easy As was said the trick is to get the jacks tight.
