THE 2014 EZZY TIGER

Last years 5 batten Tiger moves forward into '14 completely unchanged. The Tiger comes with color fusion film, a beautiful graphic layout, and both our Calibrated Downhaul System and our standard leech downhaul gauges.

The Tiger has been designed to fit a wide range of masts, and most importantly, it comes with a tested and proven design that is sure to please the more traditional sailor looking for the classic power, stability, and durability of an Ezzy sail.


“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 David, i’m giving serious consideration to buying new tiger 2014
    4.5, 5.2 and 6.3 to replace my old set. Do you thinkmy choice is ok?
    Thanks Pierluigi —-Italy

    • ezzysails

      yes! I like that scaling very much. What sails are you currently using?

  • carlo

    Hi, I am considering to buy the Tiger 4.5. Your reccomendation for mast is 370 base – 400 top. So, theoretically, should I buy 2 masts, or could I buy different Ezzy mast top – base, ordering, in this case, 370 only base and 400 only top?
    Thanks

    • ezzysails

      hello Carlo,
      Thank you for asking. You can rig the 4.5 with either a 370cm mast, a 400 cm mast, or for best results…we offer the Ezzy Masts. Our masts are actually sold in separate top and bottom sections. You can use a 400 tip section/370 bottom section together. All you need are those two sections for a supreme mast for the 4.5.

  • Tom

    Hi Dave, met you centuries ago thru North Sails, and have stuck with Ezzys ever since. Time to update my quiver with 5 new sails and curious about your thoughts re size jumps, combining Tigers at the small end and Cheetahs at the big end. Thanks for your reply.

    • ezzysails

      less is more! Sail range is always improving, so I suggest you take advantage of sail range. One suggested combination is 3.7, 4.5, 5.2 Tiger, then go to Cheetah 6.0, 7.5 You are welcome to phone and discuss at 808 575 2566 or 800 490 7436. Much of it depends upon your boards and masts as well.

      • Tom

        Gotcha, thanks. Wow, so a 1.5 meter jump between Cheetah sizes is cool? What about this: Tigers in 4.7, 5.5, 6.3 and Cheetahs in 7.5, 8.5, leaving a 1.2 meter jump between the big Tiger and small Cheetah? FYI, my boards/masts are all current in good shape.

        • ezzysails

          I like your proposed spacing. Makes good sense! Just note that our sails work great if you are mindful of the suggested Ezzy mast configuration.

  • Henrik Lund-Hanssen

    Am I pushing the distance between sail sizes too far? Renewing the whole line: Cheetah 8.5 and 6.5, Tiger 5.0, 4.0 and 3.3.

    • ezzysails

      thank you for asking. Those are certainly big jumps, which I tend to like. I think the range is workable as long as you have some skill to balance the range. I like big jumps, as it makes it easier to decide what to rig!

      • Henrik Lund-Hanssen

        Which of the jumps are most likely to be too big?

        • ezzysails

          It really depends upon your local conditions and the boards in your set up. It might be perfect!

  • Andrew

    Hi Guys – I’ve posted here a few times while I’ve been considering a full quiver change out. My work is almost done, and I am seriously considering, from the top 9.5 Lion, 7.5 Cheetah, and from the bottom Tigers in 4.5 and 5.2. The mid point is either a 6.0 Cheetah or Tiger. Without getting into too much detail on what type of sailing I do and boards I use, what are the advantages and limitations of the 6.0 Tiger v the Cheetah, and will the sail spacing I have chosen work just as well with either sail at the 6.0 mark? Thanks for your help.

    • ezzysails

      thanks for asking Andrew. Great question. My gut is telling me the quiver looks tip top. I would lean towards the 6.0 Cheetah if it were me. The Cheetah is going to have a bit more pull and stability, yet retain a great deal of the “free” feeling that a wave sail will give. Both the 6.0’s would call for a 430cm mast as a first choice. The Tiger 6.0 is a killer sail, but to me the Cheetah just has more overall range and performance. The Tiger would be my pick if you were sailing in wave sailing conditions.

      • Andrew

        Great feedback as always. Too much choice… I want both Tiger and Cheetah at the 6.0 mark. The 5.5-6.0 mark is the wind sweet-spot where I sail. So I’ve revised the quiver and see it like this: 9.5 Lion, 7.5 & 6.0 Cheetah, 5.5 and 4.7 Tiger. This provides wave and flat water sails around the wind sweet spot. I have Ezzy 490 and 430 masts for the Lion and the 6.0 Cheetah, but if I mix and match Ezzy mast tops and bottoms for the 7.5 and 5.5 (away from your recommended mast, but same lengths) how well will the new Ezzy down-haul rigging guide work, and can it be re-calibrated to suit the change in mast spec? Thanks again….

        • ezzysails

          hi Andrew,
          It can be a little clunky for me to get real detailed answering some of these questions on the forum. It is hard for me to get the format right. I’ll reply to your message with a direct email okay?

  • pierluigi

    David many thanks for The super Tiger Salis. .
    I’m using every day the Tiger 4.7 And The 5.5 in sardinia
    The Sail are super….control, wide range, Early planning
    Pierluigi ..

  • Yiannis Brighton

    Hi guys,
    I currently use Panthers 4.2 /4.7/ 5.2 but I think I need to get a bigger sail for low wind days… I am currently going out with my 5.2 on those days but I am tired of pumping..! I was thinking something in the 5.8-6.2 range. My current mast is the 400 Ezzy and carbon Chinook Boom 135-185. So looking for the ideal size that will allow me to at least use my boom…
    Cheers!

    • ezzysails

      thank you for reaching out Yiannis. I would suggest you consider the 6.0 Tiger as a nice sail to go with. You can still use your boom. You would need to get up to a 430cm mast. One option is to get a 460cm Ezzy top only, and use it with your 400 bottom. This would get you a 430cm overall mast length within our bend tolerances.

      • Yiannis Brighton

        Thanks for the quick reply! How about the 6.1 Elite? or it won’t work as well for the lighter winds..?

        • ezzysails

          Either option would work great to tell you the truth! I would go with the 6.1 if you are considering getting the 430 tip/430 bottom. go with the Tiger if you use the 460 tip/400 bottom.

  • Luka Kukec

    Hi Guys. Need a recommendation on mast choice. I have 3.7 and 4.2. – 2014 Tiger.
    Is 4.2. OK with 340 base + 370 (or 400) top?

    I just broke 370 base and need to replace it for time beeing.

    Thx and regards, Luka.

    • ezzysails

      thank you for the message Luka. You could use the 4.2 with a 400 tip/340 base. The 340/370 would also work, but might be a little bit soft for full range performance.

  • s k

    Hi guys, I am buying a new quiver, what do you think about ezzy tiger 2014 5,5/4,7/4,2 configuration. I have 90 kilo , allwave trailer board 60 cm widh arrund 90 l. or is better to take 5,2 instead 5,5. thank you in advance

    • ezzysails

      thank you for the inquiry. I’m a big fan of bigger jumps between sail sizes. It makes it easier to decide what sail to rig at the beach too! I think the 5.5 will feel really good on the board. The only concern I have is if you have the right masts for the quiver. Having the right masts for the sails will make the sail range robust and the sails will set up as intended. Hope this is helpful.

      • s k

        I just bought 4,2 / 4,7 / 5,2 ( 5,5 was out of stock), But i have wave Panther Ii – 6.0, with simmer rdms should Work ok

        • ezzysails

          Simmer bends should work great on the Panther and Tiger.
          Thanks!
