I have the Velocity 7.0 (94), plus an older XTR Fun (5.5) and a 4.5 VR.
I find that they are decently made, have great top end, but only fair
low end. If you want a 6.5 that is a good and fairly light slalom
sail, the Velocity is a good bet - especially if it is a decent price.
Also, they are almost pre-twisted for great handling in gusts (my 7.0
can sail in 6.0 conditions). I can normally sail almost a full sail
size bigger than my buddies with the Hots - just add downhaul.
I also rig the 7.0 on a carbon CC North mast - around 25-27 MCS.
The others rig well on soft stuff - around 22-25 MCS.
By the way, I am around 155 #, 5.10, and prefer sailing way-powered.
