Are there other kinds of tweaks people can do?
There are two things, you want to make sure the back of the boom is pressed up against the back of the webbing and on the smaller three sizes a customer could cut the boom shorter to be the right size just for that wing if they wish to save a little weight but then you would need an additional boom for the other sizes. There is also the option to get a Carbon boom.
Let’s talk about the Carbon MiniBoom, aside from the obvious weight savings, what other performance benefits does it offer?
The weight of the wing is important at times when you are underpowered, in a lull or during gybes, when the wind drops or during a gybe, this is when you’ll feel the weight of your wing, it’s nice to have a light wing in these circumstances. When you are on a reach or going upwind and you’re powered up you don’t notice the difference in weight.
