B Rig Jumper struts

Postby trummage » Wed Oct 13, 2010 12:05 am

New to the EC12. How many of you use jumper struts on your B rigs. For sure a must on the A rig but are they necessary on the B and C riggs.

I have seen it both ways but wondered if there is a valid argument for either approach.

I use the jumpers on the B rig so I can control the upper panel of the sail against the mast bend of high back stay settings. It is one more tool in tuning.
