Hi Donovan,

Yes you can use it like this with a 490 and still gt very good performances particularly in choppy condition.

All the best

Hi MOP,

I am 93kgs and is ok. A bit less nervous but bottom end speed excellent.

Recommend Red Line or Enigma in this case.

All the best

thanks, it is good to hear that the bottom end power is very good even with a 490 mast.

Why is it better with a red line or enigma mast? stiffer?
