We are in the process of replacing our mast
, and will most probably get a Sparcraft S1630 mast
section. This section is almost identical to the Isomat NG105 section that we had previously.
In comparing masts, I saw that Selden designs their winch
pads with a 5 degree angle to help prevent over rides. Sparcraft does not do this, and their pads are designed for the winch
to be perpendicular to the mast.
The 5 degree angle seems to me like a good idea. I am considering ordering the Sparcraft mast without winch pads, and then buying
the Selden pads separately.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
