Default Carbon 100 or 30 Mast

Hi
What are the main differences between a c100 and a c30 mast (apart from the price, obviously)? Is it still ok if i do some waveriding with a c30 or do i need one with a greater proportion of carbon because i am 16 and my budget is very limited?

Hi Nicolo
If your on a tight budget, go with a c30, it will be just fine. A lot of people will tell you "go c100". Yes a c100 will be lighter, more responsive etc, but a c30 or c45 will still give you fun. A lot of sails are actually designed around lower carbon masts and work great. You can upgrade to c100 when you get rich

Also, if you are talking SDM in waves, a 100% carbon mast is a no-no. Go with the 30%.
