    Any word on what the cost is,also shipping it is going to be an issue if you don,t live close to a Laser Dealer.

    The Australian builder is listing the retail price as $850 AUD, which works out to about $620 in US. I don't think the price has been set for the US, but West Coast Sailing is showing an estimated cost of $650.

    As far as shipping, I think it will be an oversized item. I've mailed-ordered a Radial spar before, and I believe that is just under the limit for what UPS considers oversized. Probably not so for an upper mast section.

    edit - Upper spar is 142", Radial lower is 89" and the UPS limit is 108" for standard shipping.

    APS is showing a $150 shipping fee:

    New Composite Laser Upper Mast

    I wonder if a group of sailors could organize a group buy and split the shipping fee.
