The boom is super stiff on the water, even using on an RDM mast with the shim. Plus, my hands don't hurt right now like they usually do after a session (where my palms and fingers become sensitive to sharp/rough objects) so the grip/diameter must suit me better.
Only down side is the boom "clicks" as there is a bit of play in the extension/main tubing. Not sure if this also happens on other booms, didn't on my old one but then again I had screwed that one together at a fixed length...
