Roadrunner, Four of us bought new 2015 Revo's on the same weekend and my Mates got the last Three Hobie sails and no more available anywhere here due to, "Delays getting stock from USA held up until late May."
So I fitted what I could get locally which has a Foot about 9" longer than the stock one.

I see you suggest in a past post about the stock sail sheet mount being moved forward 14" for best sail shape on the Adventure, since this is 9" longer foot it approaches you're advice in distance.

However I could not configure what I thought was a perfect angle of the Main Sheet leaving the sail foot midpoint of the trailing edge apex even with the Stern block mounted at the maximum rear position due to this sail having a slightly higher Foot TE.

So there is a little more tension on the TE than on the Foot but it doesn't appear to be Twisting much although not tested in wind yet.

The proof is in the sailing which I have not yet tried, If you're still in the forum any constructive observations would be welcome?
