Yes, I'm 100% positive it is. 30 degree aft swept spreaders and not only diagonals but reverse diagonals to induce mast
bend without backstay. Yes, it does have a backstay also I can confirm but the early models didn't. Heard people didn't trust the way it looked so they added the backstay more for looks than function. The aft spreaders act as a tripod with the forestay. I'm getting off topic though
Since the B&R rig has aft swept spreaders it can rake the mast back by shroud
tension. When its pulled back its only resistance besides the mast is the forestay which is the only thing pulling "forward".
