Having used my hotsails gps 7,3 with hotrod 460 quite a bit I can say that i really liked it. HSM build quality and ease of use were great. Then switched to challenger sails and a north platinum mast recently and can comment that I miss the build quality of HSM compared to challenger sails. Even tough the HSM hotrod combo was very nice to sail i think that I can tell a difference that the NS platinum mast feels a lot stiffer. I also think the term SDM is really missleading, it means that you can use a sdm extensiorner but different brands use different amount of drop shape so camber fit can be a problem. The rdm was great for free sailing but I belive that an sdm is the way to get best performance for larger sails (460).
