hey guys, i just bought a new sail: http://www.loftsails.com/2011/produits/advance/

i need to buy the mast and extension but i don't really understand the technical info:

Size: 6.5
Mast: 452
Boom: 204
Required mast: 430/21 RDM
RDM or SDM compatibility: 430 460 RDM SDM

Does this mean mast 430cm + 21cm Extension?
Thanks

430 mast and 22 extension.
The 21 refers to mast stiffness, which you should not worry about, as almost all 430 masts are 21 flex rating.

you might be able to get away with a 460 if needed, it might be a little stiff like 23/25. I have a sail that is 396ish and says 370 but i go both ways and will do a 400 which might be stiffer then recommended but works fine.

yea, i saw the buy/sell section of this site. Most sellers are very far from los angeles so i think the shipping charges are going to be as much as the item itself.

btw what's the difference between the:

STANDARD ALUMINUM EXTENSION
SKINNY ALUMINUM EXTENSION

do i need the standard?

As long as they're on the west coast it won't be much. I shipped a 5.5 sail to Washington state for $12.00

Standard Ext.= For the larger diameter masts
Skinny Ext.=For the reduced diameter masts

Hi Magalh,

Working at Big Winds in Hood River - we're having a close out on all our rental equipment - for example $275 for 91% RDM No Limtz from the rental fleet!!

Drop us a line and we can go through specs, prices and shipping options.

Good Winds

gotta put in a techy caution here. NL masts tend to be softer in their bend down low. most sails require a stiffer bend lower. only a few sails would be a match with NL.

Hey magalh,

I have a Severne Redline 100% Carbon Mast Reduced Diameter mast and a Severne Wave Grenade full carbon extension for sale that you might be interested in. Both the extension and the mast are in extremely good shape.

If your looking for a standard diameter mast/extension instead, I have Streamlined extensions and Sailworks 430 75% carbon mast and a Sailworks 460 100% carbon mast. The 430 has been used for two summer seasons (june-august) and the 460 has only been used for one season. Both masts are very good condition as well.

Every year, I get a quiver and use it for the summer (I go to university in the off season). At the end of every season I sell all the gear and get next years gear. Right now I have slalom, wave, formula, formula experience and freeride sails/boards/gear in a few different brands for sale. If your interested or would like Hi-Res photos of any of the gear, just send me an email at zejaymon@comcast.net and we can work out a deal.

Thanks,
Jay
