Any news about the new 91 mast?
I heard rumour they are releasing a 92cm mast with similar stiffer construction to the 72 and 82cm masts.
I heard that to.
and then I had to stop myself trying to pre-order one after I thought it through after being the owner of the 82cm mast, twice!
Has anybody else tried to max-out the speed on the newish Moses 82cm mast, I have compared back to back with the standard construction moses masts, and have found the 82 carbon is a tad slower, feels draggy at high speed, even starts to complain if you try to push past the dragy feeling, faint hum you can hear and feel, I did look back a few times as it feels like it had picked up a small bit of weed or plastic bag,
I have had 2 of the new 82cm masts and they were exactly the same at the top end speed limit,
I have now changed to the wood core standard 91cm carbon moses mast, (same price) and will stick with that instead as my "short mast" alongside my wood core 101 carbon moses mast,
the 91moses carbon is the standard thinner profile moses offering, it is faster than the 82, no humming, smoother!
for normal freeriding, sometimes with fast wings, its just better,
the 3 year old 91 carbon that I had felt like a soft length of noodle in turbulent water with a big wing, this new one feels just fine.
It should have been obvious to me the 82 would be a tad slower, it is much wider, maybe a little thicker?(I did not actually measure the thickness)
Just a heads up really, to guys like me that might not realise that there is a price to pay if you choose the stronger stiffer 82 mast for fast freeriding, and if the new 92 is made to the same spec then maybe it will be the same.
Maybe these wider masts are best left for the boards they were aimed at- the wing foil boards and the like that use the massive wings.
