I have a 6.7. It's fast, light, incredible range and adjustability. Goes up
wind better than you would think. Hard to beat.

I haven't tried one myself for financial reasons...but there are a couple
of people around here (Berkeley CA) who have them -- a 6.7 and a 7.2.  
They just love 'em. They certainly seem to have a wide wind range; one guy
sails his in everything from 16-25 mph. And I can't seem to quite keep  up
with those devils on the water, although I'm sure that has more to do
with skills than with sails.

On the other hand, I don't plan to buy one because I'm a little suspicious
of their durability.  The light construction makes for great performance,
but will they hold up well?  Ask again in a year or so, I guess...  :o)
