Re: Lower shroud tension thoughts

Isn't your mast supposed to be straight and centered on both tacks? If that's the case, who cares how tight or loose the lowers are? They're doing their job when they need to do it.
Would there, then, be a concern for shock loading when suddenly loading the other shrouds?
