How do you like your carbon fiber battons?
 
I just ordered a new sail with carbon fiber battens.

Haven't tried it out yet but I am pretty pumped. Battens are not much thicker than a noodle.

Pretty pumped to try it out.

Mine are still fiberglass, but thank you for doing your part to keep carbon from getting into the atmosphere!

I am doing my part :)

I went CF for everything from the deck up on my sailing kayak to keep weight down. My first sail was pretty good, but wasn't giving me the power I wanted. So I decided a bigger sail was in order. Sail I got has a bit more height, more foot and a bunch more roach. What impressed me was how small and light the battens need to be to hold the sails shape.

Any way, I am amused by minor things :)
