I could get a new (that is, not used) KA 2015 carbon boom (150-200) at a very reasonable price.
Anyone out there who has tried them and can give me advice on them? How well do they work? How durable are they? Any flaws?
Thanks in advance for your answers!

@joe windsurf.
Ja, aus dem S?den, bei M?nchen. Ich wohne zwar nah an den Bergen, aber definitiv zu weit weg vom Meer.Hoffentlich darf ich hier trotzdem mitmachen. Bist du auch Deutscher? Scheinen sich doch ein paar hier im Forum zu tummeln.
Back to English before the first forum members suspect a Greman conspiracy and brace themselves for imminent occupation: I spent a year in Australia though (20 years ago) and am still haunted by dreams of returning there and staying for good. Fantastic country!

Good booms. Had a KA wave sailing reduced diameter boom and reg diameter KA slalom boom, both 100% carbon, since 2014. I am 92kg and can confirm they are pretty stiff and robust with me hanging off them under load.
