The most important question is when will the 5m be available to fill orders of people waiting for them?

Today we got several hundred in stock in different sizes but a shortage of booms.  We will be shipping them to the dealers who have the most on order and pre-sold.  We will also be sending canopy only to those dealers who want them that way for the people who want to quiver up ;D

Great. I hope that's enough so I can get one, I prepaid Big Winds for a 5M a few months ago. I don't need a boom, just a canopy. I've already made a carbon boom for the 5M. I decided to ditch adjustability in favor of weight. I added an outhaul system that adjusts from 165cm to 170cm. Total weight of the 5M boom is a little over 400 grams. The aluminum boom is 902. Not really all that heavy, and very strong, but the carbon boom is nice.

You buggers!

Here's the funny part about making a carbon boom for the 5M--it takes about ten minutes. A standard Ke Nalu paddle shaft has exactly the right taper (with a tiny bit of shimming) and exactly the right length. I drilled the rivets out of the stock boom, wrapped a little aluminum tape on the shaft for the front of the boom and on the ferrule of the boom end to get a snug fit, and then hot glued them in place, Done. 438 grams.

Here is my source for a carbon tube. They supply some paddle companies.

I put boom grip on mine, plus a pulley and adjustable outhaul.

I did the sailworks outhaul on my 3/4 boom, but I didn't like how the clew wobbles around. So this time I just did a loop around the boom with a second loop for the sail to connect to. Then the line goes through the eye on the boom end, around the bracket and back out. I just pull the wing to the tightness I want. The loop on the boom snugs up to keep the clew tight to the boom. Then a couple of half hitches and it's all secure. I can't change it while I'm flying sail as I supposedly could with the sailworks setup, but I couldn't really do that anyway. No added weight.

I've ordered stuff from Rockwest--nice stuff, reasonable price. The big advantage of the Ke Nalu shaft is that it's tapered and happens to be almost the right size on both ends, and the shaft I had kicking around was the right length to yield 170CM. I think the stock length is 63", with the added length of the boom end and front it came to exactly 67".  At $187 retail for the 3K Elite, it's a little expensive, but it's super easy to make a light, fixed boom with.

Thanks Bill and Dwight for sharing your ideas. Bill, thatís a pretty cool modification, I might end up doing the same if I feel the standard boom is too heavy.

There's nothing really wrong with the standard boom, I'm just an equipment geek.

Glad you like it Bill.  I think I saw you out that evening getting a few nice rides in it by the mouth of the white salmon.  I have been loving my 5m and you can really feel the low-end Grunt on the 5m compared to the other sizes.

Yup, the wind was rangy and weird, but the wing was great.
