Test result:

A SAIL THAT DELIVERS GREAT ACCELERATION. Torro is one of Gun Sails' best sellers. It is impressive how its monofilm (not too much elastic) delivers great and immediate accelerations, at each gust. It's quite a light weight sail, and has got a good and fine construction. Good handling in old school maneuvers thanks to a short boom and a high base. It needs a constant curve mast, slightly hard top. The sail is trimmed, according Gun Sails' suggestings, witha very loose leech (see "Fred" signs in the higher part of the sail, to sheet the downhaul). The wind range that sail can bear is not so wide. Good value for money/La Torro è uno dei best seller della Gun Sails. E' impressionante come il suo monofilm (non troppo elastico) offra grandi e immediate accelerazioni, ad ogni raffica. E' abbastanza leggera, e ha una buona e rifinita costruzione. Buona maneggevolezza nelle manovre old school, grazie al boma corto e alla base alta. Esige un albero constant curve, eventualmente, leggermente tendente all'hard top. La vela si regola, secondo le indicazioni della Gun Sails, con una balumina molto svergolata (vedi indicatore "Fred" nella parte alta della vela, per cazzare il caricabasso). La gamma di vento che vela può sopportare non è così ampia. Buon rapporto qualità prezzo.
