Zeeko Blue and White Mast Compatability

I've got the Zeeko white and blue foil on my Shinn El Stubbo and was wondering if anyone knows if the Zeeko mast is compatible with Slingshot mast? I was trying to find a short mast`like the 15 inch for shallow water and SS would be easier for me to get in the US.

I believe the Slingshot is a 2 bolt mast.
The Zeeko is a 3.
But at fuselage you only use 2 but you best find one to measure.

You would have to make extra hole in fuse to match up or make an adapter like the kiteboarding.com guys do for mhl. I'm in same boat, haven't dealt with it yet. Off to go ride before tide drops...

Thanks for the replies. Yes the Zeeko mast has 3 holes but the fuselage has 2 which are 2 inches apart on center or about 50-50.8 mm. Does that line up?

Ah, hey thanks. That's what I was looking for. Guess I'll have to try to find a Zeeko mast

I just got a used el stubbo and already have slingshot setup. The mounting holes on the stubbo are just barely too wide to accommodate the slingshot base plate. From this image, the zeeko mast looks identical in shape to slingshot. Anybody know if it's possible to stick a slingshot mast into zeeko baseplate?

Or alternatively, how to attach slingshot hoverglide to el stubbo? Thanks for thoughts or help...

Thanks Wazza, I guess it’s a go. Either that or drill out my SS baseplate
