I have one of the black-strap standard Streamlined boom heads on an older HPL boom. It's always been a hassle to get the clamping of the mast correct...I often have a gap right where the strap latche ...

WM...buy some 28" lines, position the boom at armpit height, and then mount some DaKine contour straps loose. The length of your lines has nothing to do with sailing sheeted in, and sailing so c ...
