What wax to use on TPI carbon fiber mast?

Postby monroe » Sat Oct 15, 2016 5:16 pm

What wax to people recommend for treating TPI carbon fiber masts? Ours do have the typical radial cracking, and I'd like to prevent any water ingress. Also, any other maintenance tasks for the masts? I have read Eric Sponberg's article, he does mention proper maintenance but does not say what that maintenance is.

Thanks,

I used Collinite paste wax recommended by Tricia when I cleaned and waxed our mast this July. It as not difficult and didn't take much time.

So far so good. It looks a lot better.
