Re: What wood for mast core?

^comparing the weigt of wood core and solid mast one might be surprised but wood core is not that lighter when done well. Simply coz the core is so thin to compensate for 2-3mm carbon layers, hence 10mm core will make 12mm thick mast, but 5layers are not near enough (5 layers = 1mm). I've got both, ...

Re: What wood for mast core?

I used Paul. wood and shaped it in a few hrs. The problem are brass inserts for fuse/board connection since wood is not that hard. Remember, this inserts are in brass to give away first if hitting the bottom. Just like WS fins, right? I did a fuse/mast connection as well and a fuse in soft wood. Tak...

How's that? :)

Cheers!

Re: Ready to start again but first I need to buy my gearea

I'm 60kg. My biggest bet would be a 13m kite. Something that can take bashing, like Cab xbow. Before that was strugling with a 9m kite for a year! You need quite some wind for that, and u know, I rarely use my 9 anyway. Handful times in a year, if that. The 11 is my 95% of choosing, up to 25-28 kn, ...
