PsySailor is on a distinguished road
I noticed they are A LOT thicker masts that taper ascend. I did some digging and found that most builders are using carbon fiber to keep the weight down (so perhaps not that much more weight aloft.)

Definitely will need to hear more from people who've sailed both types of rigs.
