View Full Version : Will ncx 2009 work with red line mast?

13th March 2010, 12:44 AM

I bought a ncx 8.0 2009 model with the "ideal mast" blue line(75% carbon)

I would like to upgrade my kit. Will this sail work even better with red line 2010 mast? Or does it not work(it wasnt recommended in 2009 for this sail-why?)

Thanks for any answers!

It would work great with your sail. Basically you are doing an upgrade on your Blue line mast(75% Carbon) to a 100% carbon same characteristics and even faster response to gusts. The NCX sails is a pure bread of none cam sails. I will go for it for sure.
Here is the link to gide you in your buy.

Why on earth wasnt red line the recommended mast for this sail in 2009 then?

you got to be kidding me......
The NCX was design for an all round scenario. having a 75% mast recommended makes it affordable and easy to sell in mass. This sail was design for speed nd you can go ahead and buy the mast you want but a 100% mast will make this sail a better sail.
if you don't want my recommendation then you can do whatever you want.

ROI=return on investment
my new question on w/s stuff is: do i need it ?
nonopr1 says better in gusts
do you need better response in gusts with your 8.0?
with my skills i have added the question - will i know the difference
stiffer booms on 8+ and i felt the difference - enjoyed the ride too
so, for your $$, you have a recommended boom and 75% is good too
have you tried a stiffer boom ?

sorry - you have the recommended MAST ...

You do whatever you want.
But in light wind or with a 8.0 I rather have the best mast and that is it.
If you buy a ferrari and you put the wheels of a bicycle you casr is going to be fater? I rather have my ferrari wih Pirellis and 20 inch rims???

the 75% mast is NOT like bicycle wheels
it is the recommended mast and should work fine
the investment has been made
buy a 100% mast and then try and sell the 75 % ? lose some $$$
in this sport - not every-one has the chance to try stuff - otherwise try the 100% !!!
if the mast is okay - why change it up ??
to show off those perrillis and handle some gusts better ??
are you saying over a certain sail size - one should only use 100 % ???

I am not saying to buy a new mast becasue the one he has is not the correct one. It is the recommended. But you can always go better. Actually what I am saying if he want to buy a 100% carbon mast is a great investment and will do a lot of good to that sail.

Thanks over and out.

You do notice the weight difference in the full carbon masts on large rigs but the return on dollars really depends what else you were going to buy with the money. If you can afford it then why not? even if its only a little extra benefit.
