Speed equipment weight (Now versus 3 years ago)
Three years ago speedsurfingblog.com just started as my personal blog. One of the very first english articles was about my equipment weight (check the article here).Now I thought lets compare my 2008 speedset with my new equipment. Now it turns out the total weight is exactly the same! Everything got lighter except the Enigma SDM mast is heavier than the RDM I used and the the Reflex 5.6* is heavier than Vapor 5.5.
*A part of the sailweight difference can be explained because the added stickers in the reflex 5.6 also it was slightly wet and dirty during measurement today.
CA speed 44_________5100g
4.00m RDM mast______1330g
Select SL7 27cm_______294g
Starboard W44 (wood)____5000g -2%
4.00 ENIGMA mast______1580g + 19%
Alu extender_____________488g -6%

Sonntag GPS_2__________186g -37%
Total weight_____15.8kg +- 0%
