yes, it's like that.

Kvda - just broke the combination you're recommending. Would rather not go there again.
ok, I can understand, but I tried to make clear that any mast in big size with a high carbon content is a risk...
good luck!

Some of that NP monfilm quality doesn't seem poor. I have (a low end) one from a few years ago that literally sounds like a crisp packet in the gusts when given lots of downhaul. And a bigger V8 where the monofilm is deeply scored by rigging creases near the luff. I'd be interested in the Aerotech VMG - good materials and easier on the mast. But no availability here.

This might be the case, so it might be worth checking this.
