I've never pitchpoled the Tiger, used to go over in my old 17 every now and again, but only when I was doing something stupid, like losing my balance and swinging round the front when the bow digged a bit. If you hold on there with your weight back, 9 times out of 10, the bow will power out and you'll have just lost a bit of speed...

Am reliably informed that the infusion is very hard to pitchpole, and certainly is one of the hardest to pitchpole in the current f18 designs

And how is the Capricorn compared to the Infusion and the Tiger?

So far the best boat I've sailed (by far) for anti-pitchpole is my Stealth F16 - T foils really are the dogs bits !
