510. Luff on 40 cm extension?

Postby qwertyjjj » Sun Apr 23, 2017 8:57 am

I'm being cheap and trying to avoid buying a 430 mast.
Will a 441 luff 5.5 retro rig on a 460? Any noticeable effects.

I also have a 8.5 retro 510 luff. For that, think i have no choice but to buy a 490.

510 you need to buy a 490

is your retro an open top? If you're a heavier rider going to a 460 is probably going to work ok for you. I rig a 460 on a luff sail of 458 with a stubby extension. Recommended mast is a 430, but I like the stiffer feel for the 460. I live with the fact that the sail sits a little high. What your talking about is too much. The sail balance will be off.
