Question About Wireless Wind Instrument

We are outfitting our 38 foot sailboat with new instruments. Can anybody give me an opinion about whether a wireless wind instrument made for 35 foot boats will work on a 38 footer. From the waterline our mast is 56 feet. Thanks for the help.

I can tell you that we have friends with a TacTic system, and at 65 feet, it does not work reliably. In other words, I wouldn't stretch the bounds of the specifications.
