The 472 is the length from the tip of your mast to the point on your mast
extension where you downhaul your sail to. It's simple; your mast is 460cm,
set your extension at 12cm. Then shove it up the sail and downhaul ALL the
way to the cleat. Make sure you're either using a recent Neil Pryde mast, or
you have replaced the mast tip plug of your mast with the one provided with
the sail. The plug HAS to be fitted all the way into the mast, it should be
a really snug fit.
The plus or minus thing just means you can tune your Diablo with a base
extension from 11 to 13cm. Use more in higher winds.
The sail should look floppy in the head when properly rigged, this is to allow
the head to twist open when loaded.
Neil Pryde is very accurate with their recommended specs. You may even find
the sail has a break in period, and will look better after you've used it a
while when set at these specs.
