Hmm,,  sounds good.
I was considering a 2001 6.2  and using it with my  278 F2 Axxis.

Would you consider your 6.7 to be a gutsy early planing sail or more of a
top end control type sail ?  Also,  what sort of condition do u sail in ?

Jezza,

The Diablo is a Fast no cam race. You may want to check out the  RAF
Jet which is a more slalom, freeride sail and has better low end than
the Daiblo.

Have Fun,

Hey Now!  You can have my 2001 NP Diablo 6.7 for $300...I have sailed
it once for a total of 10 minutes in a fresh water lake.  I have
several NP Supersonics and love them and also a 2000 NP Diablo 7.7 and
love it....but I do not like the 2001 6.7 Diablo.  Could just be my
sail...but I can not get it to rig right.  If I follow the specs
exactly and apply enough downhaul to loosen the leech about 2/3 of the
way in on the 2nd panel down, then ALL of the battens pull away from
the mast.  I know the upper battens should in fact be pulled away, but
not the ones below and the one just above the boom.  If I back off the
downhaul so the lower battens  just touch the mast, then a strange 4"
wide "crease" appears starting at the luff in the second panel from the
bottom and then extending upwards at a 45 degree angle all the way to
the luff.  I have rigged it on 2 different masts....a NP Free Ride Pro
460 and a Fiberspar 6000...same results.  Maybe its the new "batwing"
technology, but I don't like this particular sail at all.  I have been
told that the larger sizes of the Diablos are cut differently and they
will rig the way I think they should.  Like I said, I am very happy
with my supersonics(9.0, 7.4, 6.0) and my 2000 7.7 Diablo....but not
the new 2001 6.7. Randy

I just picked up a 7.7 and can't believe how light it is!!!  I sail it on a
Bic Veloce' 278 and it's fast and very stable!  I was out in 10-20mph
conditions and was planning 95% of a 3 hour session.  I absolutely love
it!!!

It's a beautiful sail (I have the 7.7mq 00'), enough powerful, very light
and well built, excels in overpowered conditions and has a wide range, but a
cambered sail goes better upwind and let you plane also during wind-gaps
...in summary NP diablo is the best choice for every non-professional
windsurfer.
