Trying to find what sizes if any that have been made above 550?

When the 12.5 sails were made; what size masts did they run on? Which companies made 12.5's?

I would think that 550cm masts meets the goal of 12.2+ sails. Check out the Neil Pryde website. Few others support that level of performance.

My Windwing 12.5 runs on a Gulftech 580 cm mast.

I had a 2001 or 2002 North 560 100% carbon the original owner had purchased to use with an Aerotech 12.0

i don't know anyone who uses or used larger than an 11 meter sail
one fellow came over and took pictures of my GA Swift 10 meter sail
he had NEVER seen any sail over 8.5
and sooo many masts over 520 described here...
WOW

Just sold a North 550 that rigged an 11.7 Warp, never rigged it. I can just foil a 7.2 with much less hassle (and not need to tote a formula board). If there isn't enough wind for that I'd rather rig a very powerful 8.5 on my raceboard.
Nothing sucks like slogging formula equipment.

Hmm. Looks like it rigs on an aluminum mast and the downhaul is at the top?

The mast is 100% carbon fiber. The downhaul runs inside the mast and is operated dynamically via smart chip on the fly for a wind range from 5 to 55 knots. Yet it costs only $49.95 at Harbor Freight. Such a deal!
