Default NS gold 2007

Hi guys,

I have a NS gold 490 mast, year 2007, which is still doing well and I am looking to change my old Daytona with a new F12 RAM 8.6 or even 9.3. Should I buy a new mast as well? Did North change geometry of their masts recently?

Thanks for help,
Ian

Hi, you will be fine with the 2007 Gold as it is the same NS Drop-shape.

Pro's change masts each year as there can be very subtle changes, but normal sailors wont really feel the difference or benefit by changing masts each year.

Im still using Platinum masts from 2006 through to 2009 models, I can not feel any difference.

Your 490 will be better in the 8.6m than the 9,3m. The 9.3m will work much better with a 520.
