The Zeeko mast has 3 bolt extrusions which means 3 x 8mm bolts fixing it to mount plate.

When I tried the Slingshot aluminum mast with Stringy Wings, it wasn't a good combination. I do however know quite a few people who like their SS masts with the Hoverglide wings. If I was going to get a SS mast, I would probably ride the SS wings too.
I don't see why this should be the case - the only thing I can think of is the mast was incorrectly mounted on the fuselage, e.g. too far forward or backwards, or that it's too short or too long. Otherwise I can't see how it would be a bad combination as such.
