THE 2013 EZZY TIGER

A refinement of last years 5 batten design. We've upgraded the Tiger with colorfilm, a beautiful new graphic layout, and both our Calibrated Downhaul System and traditional downhaul head gauges.

The Tiger is designed for our more traditional customer looking for the classic power, stability, and durability that sets Ezzy apart from all other sail brands.


“Late yesterday afternoon I had a chance to take the Ezzy Tiger out to test the upper limit of its range (4.7). Several guys my size were on 4.2, so I rigged the 4.7 for high wind and went and played in the swells with them. Wow was that an eye opener for all of us. I was not expecting the control, balance and how relaxed I was being on “too big” of a sail. The range of the Ezzy Tiger is amazing…and it was the talk of the beach at the end of the day.”

Note on Ezzy Masts

Ezzy Sails work great with the Ezzy Mast system, but also work with a variety of other brand masts (RDM and regular diameter). You could contact your mast maker and see if the bend of your non-Ezzy mast is compliant.

Ezzy mast bend curves are tip: 75% to 79% and base: 62% to 65%

Note: this is not carbon content. This is percentage bend relative to the midpoint bend.

For further info on Ezzy Mast sizing, please refer to our Mast Configurator Tool

Our removable, 316 stainless steel tack pulley can be replaced with our 316 stainless D-ring for those who prefer a grommet with a pulley hook.

    hi,

    i have the 5,5…what is the better mast, the 430 or the 400 ? on the list there is the extension 19 cm. when i use the 430, did i need on the top 22-23 cm?

    rené, Austria

    • ezzysails

      hi Rene,
      thanks for asking. The testing was all done on a 430 tip/400 bottom for the 5.5, but either the 400 or 430 would be great second choice options. I guess it would depend upon the carbon content and brand mast you are using, which would determine the percent bend characteristics.

  • Chuck

    I have a quiver of ezzy sails and masts from 4.0 to 9.5. My most used sail is my 6.9 wave panther. I would love to replace my 7.5 freeride with a 7.5 wave sail. The higher foot on the panther is much better for heli-tacks and duck jibes. Any chance you will add a 7.5 to the wave line?

    • ezzysails

      thanks for reaching out Chuck! We currently don’t have any plans to release a dedicated 7.5 wave sail, but you might take a closer look at our 7.5 Legacy model. It only has one batten below the boom. Might be a nice alternative to consider!

      • Chuck

        Is the area below the boom on the Legacy the same similar to the Tiger or the cheetah. I seem to remember in a post on the website that the larger legacies are cut the same as the cheetah.

        • ezzysails

          thanks for reaching out Chuck. The Legacy 4.2-5.8 is based upon the same profile and cut of the Tiger. The 6.5 and 7.5 is like the cut and shaping of the Cheetah, only the Legacy only has one batten below the boom. Hope this is helpful!

  • Peter

    Hi,
    I am looking to buy a quiver of new sails for wave sailing. I have only have one wave board 82l, so I want to get out the maximum range of use out of this board with 3 sails.
    Many people seem to be using 4.2, 4.7, 5.2, but I was wondering if it makes sense to go for 4.0, 4.7, 5.5.
    I’ll use my wave sailing equipment mostly on vacation, that means, I need to be able to get it into the plane. That’s why it would be nice to have to use only 2 masts for those 3 sails, to keep the weight down.
    I am not sure what to make about the mast recommendations and how big the difference would be, if I use a 400 mast for the 5.5 instead of the recommended 400/430.

    Some hints would be greatly apreciated

  • ezzysails

    Thank you for the message Jonas. I am very similar in weight to you. The decision between the Tiger and Elite is most easily made if you tell me what masts you plan on using with the sails. if you are using Ezzy Masts, and using the correct top and bottom section that we recommend, then the Elite will deliver both high wind and low wind range that you will be quite pleased with. If you plan on using non-ezzy masts or not setting up each size with the ideal top and bottom, I would suggest you go with the Tiger. The 5 batten Tiger will be more powerful and rangy than the Elite if you are using a second choice mast simply because the Tiger has a 5th batten to help stabilize and distribute power with. I hope this is helpful!

    • jonas

      Tank you! That was very helpful.

  • PaoloPalumbo

    Ciao David….ho visto il filmato su come montare la Tiger….stavo scegliendo la vela e ho deciso di comprare una Tiger….Ezzy naturalmente!

  • Paul Drufva

    Hi David, I,m giving serious consideration to buying a new 4.2 wave tiger to replace my very old and tired ’99 ezzy wave 4.2. We get very gusty conditions here when it is windy enough to use a 4.2, like 20-40 mph. This makes things a bit tough! Last week we had such a day, and I started with my 4.2, but felt either over powered with it or under powered. Back to the beach to rig my ’07 wave se, what a difference! I managed to sail much better, staying in control when over powered, I actually had more control with a bigger sail! How would the 4.2 wave tiger work on my 400 ezzy mast? I weigh 155 and am lucky to sail once or twice a year on a 4.2.
    Thanks!

    • ezzysails

      thanks for reaching out Paul.
      We’ve come quite a long way since ’99 and even since ’07. Glad you noticed the improvements from the two models. The ’07 4.2 works okay with a 400, but really comes into its element with a 370. The sail takes less downhaul tension and just feels more balanced with the shorter mast. Hope you can give it a try with a 370!
      Regards,
      Tim

      • Paul Drufva

        Since I have the 400 mast I’m thinking maybe get the 340 base and use the 400 tip to make a 370. Any potential problems?

        • ezzysails

          the 400 tip/340 bottom is a good option to achieve a 370cm mast. It is within our bend tolerances.
          This is one of the joys of the “Mix and Match” system!

  • Antonino Girone

    Hi David, I want to buy a new 5.5 tiger 2013 and also I should have to buy a new non-ezzy mast probably powerex. What length I should buy?
    and…will I need an extention? and how long? Thanks

    • ezzysails

      thank you for reaching out Antonino. The 5.5 Tiger will rig up great on a 430 Powerex mast. The luff length of the 5.5 Tiger is 432, so you will only require a short extension. Hope this is helpful.
      Regards,
      Tim

  • Gary Yuen

    Hi David, I am looking 4.7m tiger sail but I only have 400 ezzy mast. I check the mast and the sail table the better match is 370/400 +20 extension. If I use 400 mast and short length extension, is the performance same as 370/400 ? thanks.

    • ezzysails

      Thank you for the message Gary. The straight 400 offers great performance, but the performance is just a little nicer on the 400 tip/370 bottom. Very close however!

  • KDesign

    The 2013 5.5 Tiger has a luff of 432. You recommend using a 400 and 430 with 19cm. Would the 430 with 2cm work as well? I have not changed the mast cap yet.

    • ezzysails

      thank you for reaching out. We prefer the 430/400 on the 5.5. The sail rigs up a touch nicer and rigging it up to perfection is just a bit easier. The straight 430 is certainly a good option and you should be quite happy with it in the 5.5. If given the choice, we just prefer the 430/400 combo a bit more.
      Regards,
      Tim
