Pros & Cons

  • Modular "Configure Me" RDM & SDM Compatible High Performance Boom Head
  • HD means Heavy Duty due to extra wall thickness of the aluminium boom body adding stiffness and durability
  • High density EVA grip on the front arch for maximum abrasion resistence
  • Slightly wider tails for sizes 140 and 160 and considerably wider tails for 180 and 200 sizes. Avoids sail profile distortion when using modern sails.
  • Anodized tail for less corrosion and more durability
  • Performance bolts included
  • On average heavier than other aluminium booms

FAQ

How do Unifiber measure boom diameter thickness?
Unifiber measure their quoted tube diameter – not including the EVA grip - in the centre of the harness line area. This is because the grip thickness can vary over time and also because some models feature a tapering of thickness over the boom length.
What does 1 Year Unconditional + 1 Year Conditional warranty cover?
Warranty is valid 2 years after date of purchase. When making a warranty claim in the first year the product is unconditionally warranted. When making a warranty claim in the 2nd year the product must have clearly suffered from a manufacturer error.
Can I use a boom fully extended?
Yes, both Unifiber aluminium and carbon booms can be fully extended. In both construction options there is no increased risk of breaking the boom as well the booms stiffness will remain at an acceptable level.
Are the Performance Bolts required for a proper perfomance of the Unifiber boom head?
No. The Performance Bolts were developed with the professional windsurfers in mind, who seek the maximum possible stiffness. Even without the Performance Bolts, the Unifiber boom head will match or exceed the performance of any other boom head on the market. The Performance Bolts 'upgrade' the stiffness of the boom head by approx. 10%. But this is a matter of personal taste. Some surfers prefer to sail without the Performance Bolts, to make the ride a little bit softer.
