Most customers change their individual sail and mast sizes according to demand and therefore own a quiver with different brands. When building up your sail quiver, you should try to combine sails that have a similar feel and behavior. The one decisive factor defining how similar or different one sail feels/behaves to another is the position of the draft, in both levels, vertical (high><low) and horizontal (forward><back).
Basically there are 2 different kind of wave sails:

Our sails are designed around DUOTONE masts for maximum performance. You wouldn’t spill ketchup over your rump steak either.
A shorter mast and longer extension lead to a softer rig. A longer mast and shorter extension will result in a stiffer rig respectively. It depends on which characteristics you prefer. Generally lighter sailors often prefer softer handling, whilst heavier sailors often prefer a stiffer, more direct feeling.
Firstly, a higher carbon content reduces the weight and increases the responsiveness. The quality of the mast influences the performance of the sail extremely. Please find more information here: https://www.duotonesports.com/windsurfing/hardware/masts/
The Platinum Aero is the lightest and most exclusive boom on the market. It’s up to 200g (for masts) and 400g (for booms) lighter than the Platinum version and made of 100% T900 carbon.
In a nutshell and without sales man’s words:
1) You don’t have to sit down to pull the downhaul, so your ass doesn’t get wet.
2) You don’t need a harness / hook / bar to pull strong enough. Especially for larger sails this saves a lot of your energy.
3) You can adjust the downhaul trim on the water.
Imagine: you are in Pozo, the wind picks up, and you’re overpowered. Well – the POWER.XT protects your feet from walking over the rocks to readjust your sail on land.
The Uni.XT is the only extension which works with any kind of sail. Check out this manual:
2+3 years: all sails, except the Idol, Super Hero M.Plus, Warp and Warp Foil
2 years unconditional: all booms, masts, extensions, bases (except all AERO, EPX, BLACK products)
