Ive heard good and bad things. What do you guys link ?
Alex for what you will be using it for you can't go wrong I've owned a few over the years and for the money I think they are good value especially considering you can get a 160 220 which will cover alot of sail sizes.n
surf connect has them nice and cheap
get the 140-200... don't think you need the bigger size unless you plan on getting sails above 7m
I bought one (hybrid - predator I think its name was, brown, thin grip) a couple of years ago, 3 sessions and it went back to the shop with a bend either side of the harness lines on the starboard side, I did catapult at over 30 knots with it but the way it bent it looked like it was made of cheese.
Went back to using carbon, its worth the extra.
A carbon boom is on my wishlist for my next birthday. Ain't got much money left
But a prolimit i can afford at the moment
EDIT: just found a couple of cheaper used booms:
No details... so u prob wont b able to tell me anything.
Hi dancing banana
Like you I'm waiting to be able to afford a carbon boom. Meanwhile I bought a prolimit Assault (v Grip) 180/240 that covers from 5.7 to 7.8.
Very solid, took me a few sessions to get used to the vgrip but I'm really enjoying it now.
Seems of much better construction than the two last RRD booms I broke in less than 6 months.
Without photos, those boom ads are useless. How old and how used are they?
You check out board crazy? They had some great deals going on new kit a little while ago.
