Kudos and congrats!
I'm still dreaming of s26 carbon 30 to fit my 3 old fuzes I'm using.
My old style 70, 65, and 90 masts are the narrow chord models, and it's easy to get them to spin sideways ...

Nobody cares about speed anymore. That was a year 1995 quest.
Now, it's all about what you can do....trickster wise.

Lots of people drive cars and never know how to change a spare, open the hood, or how to add gas.
Do you want to be like them?

None.
Like do you need to know what kind of derailleur is used on your bicycle?
Do you need to know the capacity of the furl injectors of your car?
Do you need to know the specs of the cushio ...

I'm still on the older narrower masts, mostly 90 for windfoil, and 65 for wing. Seems fine at Berkeley. Pitch control is easier with wing.
2140 seems fine for windfoil...extremely slow with wing.

I think if I were heavier than 85 kgs, or younger-stronger, I'd go newest c35, especially for foils bigger than 1650.
I kinda like the 2140 on old narrow 65 cm mast...very solid and stiff, with 310 ...

Food for thought....
Naish reconsider 280 stab for new 95 fuze.
Used to reco 320 stab for 80 fuze.
Seems almost no problems with carbon 35 or full carbon masts.
Some older problems with al ...

Also, you can run smaller stabs to get tighter turns on long fuzes.
Conversely, bigger stabs on shorter fuzes for stability.
The new masts need the new fuze.

I use 79 fuze, sometimes 2140, mostly 1220 and 1150, sometimes 600, on Hover 122 with old style narrow alu masts.
At 160 lbs weight, me, it's fine.
Stiff with 65 mast, fine with 70, just ok with ...
