Default RDM VS. SDM

Hi there,

Next year I'm planning on buying the Code: Red in the sizes 4.6 / 5.6 / 6.7 / 7.7. For the 6.7 and 7.7 I'll have a Red Line 460 of course, but the thing that's left me worrying (can't sleep, just bang my head every day and night ) is the mast-thing for the smaller sizes. The 5.6 want's a 400 cm. mast, and the 4.6 a 370 cm. mast.

My question: Does anyone found out there are significant differences in putting a RDM mast in a fullrace sail. Please also consider the budget: If the difference is small I'd prefer RDM because of the fact that I can use those masts in my wave sails as well!

I heard an RDM makes the sail-feeling ''softer'' but I'm not quite sure what that's supposed to mean, but everyone says it should have advantages for a lightweight sailor like me (70 kg.) Anyone able to tell me more?

Thanks in advance,

Julian Gijsen
