As for a starting point for your mast tune we use the North Tuning guide.

We use North 3DL, don't tell the Anarchist. We are very happy with the sails. The service was great last year, we haven't heard much from our guy this year. I am sure he will be calling over the winter.

I like going fast. If the #1 is the fastest sail then we should be able to use it. We have been

We have a North main and have had no trouble at all with the slides. Any chance you have a bur on the mast catching the slide?
