Default older North Mast 460 / 15 %

Found a reasonable used North mast which seems to be 460 cm and 15 % carbon.
It looks to be in good shape.
I am still looking for a 460.
As a heavyweight in a lite wind region, my sails are 7.0 and larger and go on 490 and 520 masts.
Luckily my 7-oh still fits on a 490, but one day, I hope to use more modern sails.
As such, I imagine 30 % would still be the starting point ??

my current masts are 75 % and 100 % - as marked.

as you go down in sail size i have heard one can get away with less carbon.
and obviously many are using RDM in the smaller sizes now as well.

as usual i am just trying to save some money, but the more i write here, i guess a North 460 15 % SRS is out of the question ??

thx in advance
