    This glider has the same performance characteristics as the plain ASW 27 and the differences mainly lie in the water ballast details: ASW 27B features a tail ballast, easier-to-fill wing ballast and a better placed dump handle.

    Uh, yes, newer winglets too.

    We are looking for an influential pilot to review ASW 27B. Maybe you?
