Mast moses 101 worn graft mast - fuselage

Postby grandeand » Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:18 pm

the mast is a 2017, so out of warranty.
I noticed this anomalous consumption when I removed the fuselage.
I noticed that when I put it back on, the front part of the wedge (leading edge part) enters the fuselage about 1mm 1.5 mm with respect to the rear wedge (trailing edge side).
remedies?
advice?

is the front bolt becoming loose after use?
is the stainless insert standing proud from the carbon flat mating edge?
is that just friction wear showing? it looks like a repair from the photo, with paint spray peeling away, i have a photo of a 2017 101 mast with this damage showing quite clearly, the 2017 mast has the white graphic lines that sweep to one mast end in a long wide curve, this mast has seen a few isolated failures I will post up a photo from only a few back.
but than may have been more the fault of the owner using a power tool to tighten the fuse to mast bolts, and too many failed hard landings from many years of high boosting.

the tree I bought in 2018, from a friend who never jumps with hydro.
I've always used it with the fuselage 647 and 590-330. I have never noticed this consumption.
since last year using two fuselages 647-710 I disassemble it more often but always clean and used grease.
the front screw loosens over a 3-4 hour session.
since this year I no longer have the 647 fuselage, I have always kept the 710 mounted and the front screw after a few sessions has not loosened anymore. undoubtedly there is a consumption of the wedge in the front, but this consumption is in almost all trees used for a few seasons.
Mast is a vorace fr 101, the next one that has no white stripes and is straight.

definitely odd, checked lots of moses masts to day, most of us on moses carbon, and nothing to be seen like the wear on yours, I would not worry too much though, due to the massive metal moulding that's sitting beneath that end of the mast, and you have the better mast no curvy white graphics, straight mast, late 2017- 2020 mast

I don't know what to say.
the new masts have a perfect wedge and you just have to place the fuselage on it and see that it fits perfectly. I saw on a fluent, and two voracious 2017-2018 that this perfection is lost.
obviously when you tighten the screws, everything stops.
