New Panther Elite
Seasprite Sports now have their hands on the New Panther Elite which is Ezzy’s first four battened all – round sail and has been developed both extensively and carefully over the last two years before it’s release.

The sail is receiving very high acclaim from customers, shops and rider. Jem Hall, Ezzy brand manager UK, has this to say about the Elite:
‘I received the sails in late July and my first few sessions were in bump n jump conditions and then I really got to know them on my wave clinic in PSC, Baja, and furthermore in Rhodes and during our recent fun filled autumn sessions. I have now used them *in flat water, waves and chop and for bump n jump, freestyle and, of course, wave sailing and I found the sails to be very light, have easy power, very stable and the usual massive wind range that you expect from an Ezzy. The power is similar to the Ezzy Tiger yet it is a softer delivery and due to the 4 battens the sail has an on / off switch that you can illicit from sheeting in or out and down to this the sail is quite neutral through gybes, riding and freestyle. I am really enjoying the sails, from 5.7 to 3.7, but the proof of the pudding is that when you hand it so someone to try then they are definitely are too.’

David Ezzy didn’t just remove a batten and rush to market with a 4 batten sail like so many other companies. Ezzy decided that he wouldn’t even put a four batten sail in production unless it was better in all aspects over his existing 5 batten wave sails. Of course the Elite feels lighter, but what is amazing is how stable and easy to sail the Panther Elite is. This sail is great in the waves, but the Elite can double as a perfect flat
