I am in the process of upgrading my 2002 tiger to a self-tacking jib and noted in a previous post that there is a revised jib for the self-tacking system.

What has been revised? Is there a totally new cut on the jib or can an old style jib be used or modified?

It is my understanding that the self-tacking jib was an option in 2002. When did the production of the revised jib start? Is there any way to identify which jib I have?

Thanks to all who contribute to this forum! This is an awesome tool for the Tiger community!

There have been a couple of tweaks to the cut of the jib - but not to worry... even the oldest of jibs work fine with the tacker system... you may need to attach the block to the clew in a slightly different hole location than you do currently - but not a big deal/
