I have just bought House carbon 60 mast and have a few questions about it:
1.Any general info - quality, durability?
2.Should I use a metal mast protector in the boom attachment area ( I
have Chinook Competition with 120 degrees front end)? Does it work?
3.When using mast base extension from Chinook and Bic I found a little
wobble - seems like the mast's internal diameter is slightly bigger than
the epoxy's that I have (it doesn't have the wobble). Is it bad for the mast?
I suspect that the pressure is unevenly distributed at the base which
will cause it to break there. The House people told me that it's OK
and the mast's wound helix construction tightens up when dounhauled.
I believe them but would like to hear it from fellow windsurfers.
4.What is the care for such a mast? I know the basics - keep away from
direct sun and don't scratch - but feel I need to know more - never owned
And the last question is not about the mast at all: Haw is the Reactor
harness bar better than others?
Thanks. Hope my questions will be interesting to many.
