Soft or stiff long or short, what do people like?

Let's say a North ICE 5.3 recommended mast 400 / 430, the luff is 440
so a long extension and a short soft mast or shor extension and long mast stiffer? Could one say if you are light >75kg you would prefer a softer feel and the 400 mast and heavy 85kg+ prefer a 430 mast stiffer.

What would a 80Kg person like? a 400 mast make the sail feel softer and twisting even more than the ICE is already doing, maybe better in marginal condition, and when overpower 430 mast maybe?

What do people think, person preferences??
