The OptiParts BlackGold spars for Optimist sailboats are the ultimate choice for the competitive Opti sailor. All BlackGold series spar sets include a 45 microns black hard anodized 7075 mast, a black anodized boom, and a black anodized 7075 sprit pole. These spars include 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, HARKEN ball bearing halyard blocks and pure Vectran spliced halyards. All Optimist 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.
This BlackMax spar set is designed for heavier sailors and features a stiffer 55mm BlackMax boom, an ultra stiff and yet lightweight Optimist boom can be used without a bridle, enabling the larger sailor to land further forward when tacking, and a 29mm BlackMax racing sprit, designed to give more control over the leech of the sail and is especially recommended for sailors over 45 kg.
The BlackMax spar set contains:
- BlackGold Optimist mast (EX900)
- BlackMax 55mm Optimist boom (EX955)
- BlackMax 29mm Optimist sprit (EX965)
- Supplied with rigging pack (EX13591)
CARE NOTE - BlackGold spars are subject to corrosion from salt water. We recommend rinsing your spars with fresh water after each use to minimize corrosion and keep your spars in top condition.
