Does any know if North recommends the new Ezzy 430 RDM mast (MCS 25.1, IMCS 21.9) as compatible for the 2011 North Duke 5.9 sail? I have heard rumors over the years that North sails are often not real compatible with other manufactures masts. I can not get the North contact info web page to work properly.

Speciific case here.
You gotta rig it to know.
Not all Ezzy masts are exactly the same specs.
Not all sailors need the same tuning.
Depends how anal you are.
It will work for sure, for someone.
I mix masts all the time, and it matters very little in non race sails.

For what it's worth you can check the below chart. It's probably not going to be perfect but you'll be able to use it.

I use Ezzy masts and NoLimitz masts with my 2011 Ices and Duke 5.9.
Both work very well; the Ezzy feels a bit "softer" than the NoLimitz, so
I tend to use the Ezzy if it's mad gusty.
