Reply To: Garden hoses and proctor masts!
The problem that you are referring to has two parts. Firstly that most carbon masts are coming out well under weight which means that extra weight other that the allowed correctors needs to be added. The second problem is that the new mast rule has no provision for the internal inspection of the mast so as it stands as long as the mast is of the correct weight and has the correct COG then it is an OK mast. That’s my understanding of the rule as it stands at the moment. I believe a rule change is to be proposed at the AGM at the worlds.
