Sory my english.
In my club all 2009 North carbon platinum booms have broken in the same plase in front part (aluminium inside) 6 booms.And the diller dasnt has booms for change all finished.
The same with 2009 X9 all of them have big cracs or broken in front part(9 booms).
I have to admit ,that the quality of X9 2008,2007,2006 were much beter.
In my country only North ,Pryde,Gaastra.
Pleese send information about 2010 carbon booms.
Thanks in advans for everybody.

Go for Tecnolimits, Al360 or Fiberspar: very good and reliable products.

I've also read about Maui Sails booms but never tried or saw any of themm..

I will recommend the MauiSail Boom. I have 4 of them and never had any issues.

Its crazy how two of the most expensive booms around keep breaking. Im using carbon Fiberspar & HPL (with Mauisails boom clamp) for 3-years plus, no problems so far. Also got an old 2003 Arrows Ulitmat race, again no problems but not as solid/stiff as the HPL/Fiberspar. Heard that Mauisails carbon is really strong and nice feel. Difficult to get the Mauisails over in the UK. A couple of locals use the Tecnolimits and say there really decent booms.
