Liquid Force mast top plate/pedestal alternative?

Postby galewarning » Sat Apr 03, 2021 4:47 pm

Anybody know if another foil brand uses a mast with the same cross-section and hole spacing as what Liquid Force used?
Reason: I want a top plate/pedestal with 90 x 165 mm spacing, instead of the 90 x 140 mm spacing that LF used. Note: The hole spacing on the LF mast is 58 mm and the cross-section thickness is ~14.5 mm.

TIA,
-Barry

windfreak74,

Thanks for the suggestion, but what I'm really asking for is for a mast with the same cross-section and same 2-hole spacing, 58mm, as Liquid Force. Some manufacturers use unique aluminum extrusions, but I suspect someone else shares the same extrusion dimensions that LF used for kite masts.

Also, ProjectCedrus would be a great option if I wanted to get his custom mast which works with my LF foil, but I can't afford 3 custom carbon masts.
