The compromise is not that easy.
The Spectro cn perhaps be pumped onto a plane nearly as early as the Pyro,
but the Pyro is very drafty, the Specro is less so.
The Specro wil have better top end speed, and a greater range, as the extra
cam really helps stabilize the Spectro.
You can keep on downhauling the Spectro and get more range without the top
of the sail breaking up like an over downhauled Pyro.
Hope this helps!
