Rig weighed

I got the mast including five halyards, standing rigging, antenna and wind transducer on the scale the other day.  I was a bit disappointed as it showed 64,9 kg.  The good part is the top was only 26.

The good part is, you did not go with the original laminate schedule, cause it would have been over 100.

Do you have any idea what the bare tube weighed? That was really the important question. Everything else that has brought it up to 64kg doesn't count as far as satisfaction levels go because it is the same for all masts. I reckon if you weighed an equivalent marstrom mast it wouldn't come in drastically lighter.
