So Lak are producing a 21m tipped LAK 17B - so a glider you cn fly in 15,
18, and Open Class - will it be competetive in any?


I am looking at a very nice LAK-17A and a very nice ASW-27 (lot more $$). I heven't seen any LAK-17B's on the used market. For a low time new glider pilot (have a commercial glider add-on and CFIG rating, but no contest experience) looking for a fun, reasonably good performing glider would the 17A be much of a downgrade from the 17B if I go the LAK route?


I would definitely choose the 27.
