Moses masts/struts

Postby TomW » Thu Oct 17, 2019 7:33 pm

I've been using the Moses fluente 93cm mast from 2016 3 years. The curved one. I'm thinking ( trying to find a reason to upgrade... :lol: ) of getting a new 2020 one.

If anyone has ridden both, Is there any performance difference?

There are moments when I'm pushing upwind and it feels like mast kinda " catches " and does hard roll to windward. Makes me wonder if they changed the design due to some performance issue.

I'm on 2018 633 wing ( first year) set and fuselage.

Hi Have the same set up and changed mast about a year ago from the "old", slightly curved to the new straight 91cm. I was surprised how much of a difference it was. The new mast feels much smoother, I guess its because of the slightly reduced thickness, so it has less drag. It was worth the change for me.
