Question Mast/Sail Quiver question

Hi Roger,

I have Sailworks Retro's in 9.0 and 7.5 that I get away with rigging on a 490 Joystick. I just ordered a 6.0 Retro and need to get a smaller mast. Since the Retro 6.0 can be rigged on 430 or 460 and my 7.5 can be rigged on 460 or 490, do you think there is any advantage in choosing a 430 or 460 mast for my quiver? Could you describe how the longer/stiffer mast impacts the sail performance and which sail you would reccomed running the longer/stiffer mast in?

PS- I am 190 pounds and sail mostly in light winds with bigger rigs up to 11.0.

Thanks in advance,
JohnK
