Hi, I'm looking to fit a spinnaker track & pole on Grey Goose (400e from 2005).  I'm getting conflicting recommendations on diameter required and whether it should be mast stored.  In reality, the pole will spend most of its time polling-out the 140% genoa rather handling a symmetric spinnaker.  What's the experiences in the group on diameter and mast storage? 

My starting assumption given the scale of the 400 rig is something like 100mm diameter pole for a full symmetric setup but perhaps it can be just 80mm for light duty on the genoa.  However 100mm and 4.6m in length seems large and heavy if I don't go the carbon route.

thanks

Hi, I have 80mm alu, length 4,62m. I have a light spinnaker so I take it down at 8m/s. Works fine.
