Yes the NSI foam nose guards are good they have a dual density foam so it takes a good hit and distributes the impact loads. The boom pad will help also but most of the boards are so short these days that the boom might not cause the most damage. It might be the mast. I would rig a sail connect board and then rotate board around mast and boom head and see what hits the nose and then base your decision on what part of the rig hits the nose of the board. The T boom protectors I think c-clip to the mast so i don't think it would interfere with sail rotation. I'll have to take a closer look the next time I run up to the local shop. Good luck. Michael
