Spars & Rigging

Carbon mast spars - Our carbon tubes of 8 mm diameter and over are made from high modulus carbon and are approximately 60% stiffer than tubes made from high strength carbon. Our carbon tubes less than 8 mm diameter are made from high strength carbon.

Alloy mast spars - All aluminium alloys have the same stiffness. The only way to get a stiffer alloy mast is to increase the diameter and/or wall thickness. The alloy tubes we stock have a medium temper that enables them to be pre-bent easily to the shape required without great danger of breakage. There is a thorough explanation of this subject in the FAQs section.
