More confirmation. I'm hearing this a lot. Got any opinions on the 29 versus the 30? I like the concept of the 29 (larger main/smaller jib) but have heard some concerns expressed about the 29 wanting to go bow down given that the rig is further forward.

Edit: Hopefully I'll figure out how to get rid of the automatic hyperlinking. Though if someone could help me speed up the process, I'd appreciate it.
