I didn't find the answer searching...
Is the Wild Cat spin the same as the Tiger? I'm sure the sqm is the same, but the dimensions?
I didn't see any Hobie Spins for sale online, is there a store that I should be calling?
Can I just buy a Wild Cat spin instead?

Thanks!

I have a extra spi from Landenberger that i used on my Tiger and now i,m using it for clubraces on my wildcat
The shape is the same ,the newer spi,s are a little bit flatter design than the old one,s

There are 2 different sizes the lighter crews have a 19 m³ spi (and a 3.45 m³ jib ) otherwise a 21m³ size

So i see no problem to use a Wildcat spi on your tiger

Depending on the vintage of your boat, I believe you need to move the sheeting blocks further forward for the newer/flatter cut ones.
