There was just a thread on this a few days ago. It's a design that crops up here and there, seems to work
, and since the shrouds aren't actively chafing the aluminum
slot, it's going to be OK. The mast makers couldn't know the precise angle that the shrouds would exit, so they guessed at the slot location and got it a little wrong. If it was a big deal you'd have lost
the mast already.
