Ok, so you want too cut the u shaped section shorter? That would make the boom less stiff and would not make the boom shorter. No benefit.

Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you.

yeah, i'm with mark...from what you say, you want to cut the tail piece by 20cm, but all that will do is give you a boom of 200-260 instead of 200-280

you need to cut the outer tubes of the main piece to get a shorter boom

Hi,

OK, I've looked at both links and for most booms it seems simple enough, but I have 2 of the Gulf Tech VMax FW booms I want to cut, which have a very wide tail on 'em.

Any thoughts on how many cm I can cut off these and still have anything usable?
