    Severne Pro Models, 2015- onwards

    Any thoughts or reviews of the S1 or Blade?

    As an early adopter. The weight of 2.4 kg on a 5.2, S1 looks really interesting on paper.

    Only seen Köster, on his signature sail, the Blade Pro live on water.

    hi, the S-1 Pro in 4.8 turned out to be the best sail i ever had.
    haven't used it in proper waves and find it very allround
    even for b&j at Lake Neusiedl.
    very light, efficient and early planing @5bft
    plus very stable and easy @7bft
    biggest wind range, easy handling, fun to sail!

    some info here:

    anyone who knows the Blade Pro -
    why did the clone testteam prefer the standard Blade over the Pro?

    in particular i'm interested about early planing and about size 5.0

    the coming '16 S-1, seems like Ben gave it a bigger window:

    and for '16 the Blade Pro could get a red/yellow colour scheme similar to the current standard Blade:

    Yes, that yellow and red is not dissimilar from the current Blade – with the yellow quite golden, rather than a lemon shade.

    Looks great. The window looks the same to me too (on the Blade).

    The one in the Jimmy Hepp Ho'okipa pic has the Severne 'arrow' logo similar to the current pro versions.

    I'm guessing the Pro (Koster) version is more powerful than the standard version – more gutsy.
