Is NP mast CK95 (98) compatible with NP 2000 Freeride/Race Sails?

Is NP mast CK95 (98) compatible with NP 2000 Freeride/Race Sails?

Hello mates, I am seeking here for your opinion:

I have an opportunity to buy Neil Pryde CK95 mast (1998, 460 cm/25). Is this
mast compatible with Neil Prydes 2000 series sails (V8, Supersonic,
Diablo)?

As you perhaps know, NeilPryde 99 & 2000 series are designed with the new
Light Tip Technology (LTT) masts in mind.

You can read that the 99 sail series is compatible with 98 masts (CK95).
I suppose that  the 2000 series is compatible with 99 masts (LTT).
Does it imply that 2000 series is still compatible with 98 masts?

If the answer is "yes", are there still any drawbacks? Would you
recommend it for use with NPs 2000 Freeride/Race sails in range of 6.5-7.2?

Could it use my wife in her NP Supernova 5.9 (1999)?

Thanks for your response ...

Radim

I have tried some of the 2000 sails with a CK95 and with the new 2000 masts.
There is a very noticeable difference in feel to the sails when using the
2000 masts vs. the CK 95.  The 2000 sails feel mush lighter and more
responsive with the recommended 2000 masts.  Plus, the 2000 masts have the
integrated ferrule which makes those masts much more durable than the CK 95.
Definitely worth the extra $$$ to buy the recommended 2000 mast.

Hello Stefan,
thanks for you opinion.
I have got very interesting response on this also on The Message Board at
www.neilprydemaui.com.
I also found there a lot of tuning tips and last equipment reviews.
Definitely worth a look.
