Pros & Cons

  • Modular "Configure Me" RDM & SDM Compatible High Performance Boom Head
  • Monocoque solution enhances stiffness and durability
  • The tapered boom tube has a reduced diameter in the grip area. This makes the boom more comfortable.
  • High density EVA grip sections on the front arch for maximum abrasion resistence
  • Slightly wider tail avoids sail profile distortion when using modern sails
  • Optional performance bolts not included
  • Because of the reduced diameter in the grip area it is less stiff and durable than the non-tapered Essentials boom. We recommend the Tapered Essentials boom for light-weight users only.

FAQ

What does 1 Year Unconditional + 1 Year Conditional warranty cover?
Warranty is valid 2 years after date of purchase. When making a warranty claim in the first year the product is unconditionally warranted. When making a warranty claim in the 2nd year the product must have clearly suffered from a manufacturer error.
How tight should I screw on the performance bolts?
In most cases, the perfect tension is when the spacers just touch the boomhead's plastic on both sides. Taking into account manufacturing tolerances, this rule might not always work. Tighten the bolts firmly, but don't overdo it. When you notice any deformation of the plastic around the screw holes, don't tighten any further. Too loose and you might lose the nut while sailing. Too tight and you might damage the boomhead.
