A 90kg pro Formula sailor pumping his rig to get on plane in a race will put a hell of a lot more stress on the mast than my 80kg amature racing body can do. Point being, I could have a defective mast and not break if for months or years.

I guess the answer is, when we get a new mast, we downhaul it to the max, find the biggest guy on the beach and have him pump the hell out of the rig for 30 minutes to see if it will break. If it does, presto - a valid warrantee claim.
