Matt Pritchard
“A new, high-cut foot gets you easily under the sail. Duck jibes or Cana Bravus, the new Echo is a real standout this year. A well-balanced luff curve and flat shape make for a very efficient rig that is super smooth in transitions. Soft and elastic the Echo is always a sick ride.”

Compatible with other masts that are equal in length and IMCS, including standard diameter masts.
