This mast is perfect if you are looking for durability with good response and a light feel. The FLX70 shares the same bend curves as the FLX100/FLX40. As with all our masts, the FLX70 is designed to work in perfect synergy with Neil Pryde sails.

Durability, Reliability and performance go hand in hand
The FLX Program
The NeilPryde mast range is based around three performance levels: FLX40, FLX70 and FLX100. Higher performance level masts will have higher carbon content reducing the weight of the mast as well as significantly increasing reflex and overall performance.
Every NeilPryde sail will perform to its highest potential when used with the specified NeilPryde mast because our sails are designed around our mast curves.
The NeilPryde RDM masts are compatible in curve with NeilPryde SDM masts. Choose a RDM mast for a softer, more forgiving feel and durability and a SDM mast for a faster response, stability and more direct feel. We recommend the use of SDM masts on cambered sails.
A precision engineered, computer controlled machine, filament wound technology where each individual yarn application is controlled by a computer program. Each mast size has a custom layup of composite yarns where each individual layer is applied at a unique angle to the mandrel to match the bend characteristics, loads and load angles each section will be subject to. Upper sections of the masts are subject to flex and torque loads and filament wound technology allows precision matching of load bearing yarns with the actual load angles the mast is subject to. Based on our proven technology from the RS:X Olympic program where durability, reliability and performance go hand in hand, the new FLX series are tough, strong and fast.
