stiffening an older rig - longer spreaders?

Post by Breaders » Mon Jul 05, 2021 9:11 am

Hi,

I have Cunning Stunts ICOD

she has quite a soft carbon mast compared to my ample mass,so i was considering seeing if lengthening the spreaders would support the rig more.

if so how long can i go

i dont have lowers, just a mast gate, but could also add them.


what range of spreader lengths do people use?

Only way to stiffen up a mast is to add carbon
