Due to the specifications, there is no equal to the Optiparts BLACKGOLD™ sets. Two 45 microns Black hard anodized 7075 masts, a choice of three black anodized booms and two black anodized 7075 sprits.
All black fittings, hard anodized cleats, a black sprit chafe guard, captive eye straps on the boom, a halyard cleat with becket. Zero stretch, zero creep, black, Vectran line package, 45 mm power boom, HARKEN ball bearing halyard blocks and pure Vectran spliced halyards.
We offer a choice of three booms:
The 40 mm BLACKGOLD™ MEDIUM boom (EX940). A stiff and lightweight boom which is suitable for the majority of sailors.
The 45 mm BLACKGOLD™ POWER boom (EX945). A stiffer boom to keep more tension on the leech for the heavier sailor. The smaller bridle gives more space when tacking.
The 55 mm BLACKMAX™ boom (EX955). This ultra stiff and yet lightweight boom can be used without a bridle. This enables the larger sailor to land further forward when tacking.
All booms are made from high grade, tempered tube. Fitted with captive eye straps, black nylon in- and outboard end fittings, nylon outhaul cleat, 4 mm Vectran outhaul and bridle, Vectran vang and outhaul trim gauge.
The 29 mm Blackmax racing sprit is 19% stiffer than the 27 mm Blackgold sprit. It gives more control over the leech of the sail and is especially recommended for sailors over 45 kg.
