Ezzy Sails Taka 7
The Ezzy Taka 7 is based on Ezzy’s Taka 6 – there isnt a massive change apart from the material in the luff and new styling for the 2021 season. To be honest this is one of our favourite sails at 2XS (Simon’s personal sail of choice) – the real deal about the new Ezzy Taka 7 is it’s the lightest, the most powerful, has the same top end wind range as the EzzyWave, however, the Taka has amazing bottom end wind range in gusty conditions and keeps you on the plane when other sail sizes of the same size stop.
Dont be put off by the short batten, it doesnt reduce the stability it only enhances power, control and adds an extra dimension to the sail. David Ezzy removed the PVC window from the Taka 5 this has made the sail feel superlight in your hands and if you get the chance to try a Taka 7 I think you will understand the difference. You can choose to use a smaller sail than others on the water as there is tunable low end power (12cms of outhaul) or use equivalent sizes when you are windsurfing.
Again what we at 2XS like about this sail is the fact that you can use it on flat water as a bump and jump sail; on a foil as a foil sail or full on in wave sailing.
The Ezzy Taka 7 is manufactured in Ezzy’s custom factory in Sri Lanka – each Ezzy is prerigged at the factory to ensure the setting and build quality is perfect, you have 3 full battens and 1 three-quarter batten on the sail – all the battens are Ezzy’s end-do symmetrical profile battens. The Taka 7 is built to withstand daily beatings that a wave sail must endure, there is a calibrated rig setting which allows you to quickly set for normal wind conditions and for superlight winds. All Ezzy’s are best set on Ezzy RDM masts.
