Just from watching both video's you can't drop the Tasmanian sail to the deck of your kayak like the Falcon sails. I've done this my self and you can drop the whole rig to your deck in 2 seconds, clip it down and you're off paddling, or one pull of the mast line up pops the sail and you're off.

I even got dumped on a rough afternoon, I zigged when I should have zagged and I went over. While upside down I loosened the rigging, the mast joint allowed the sail to lay flat and then I rolled back up. I gathered myself, popped the sail and I was off again in seconds.

The mast and boom are not bendable aluminum polls, You fold that aluminum mast and you're finished. Falcon sail masts are carbon and extremely well made, the mast knuckle is a precision tooled fitting and the sails use sailboat technology.

We spent a week at Isle Royale in Lake Superior and one of our members used his Falcon sail all week and did laps around us.
