I have 3 masts.
83 - 91.5 - 100 cm (yes, not a coincidence the middle one is exactly between the short and long one)
The 83 only used when really light and dead onshore, so I can not drag out, but have to rely on getting up in shallower water, to ride out.
The 91.5 no doubt my most used mast now, a good compromise for "everything".
100 cm great when rough or bigger waves or loads of chop.
So your 35" mast would be my choice for an overall mast for "everything", if you asked me.
