50/50 Carbon/Aluminum "Combo" Whisker Poles
These Line Control™ Whisker poles offer just the right blend of aluminum and carbon structures to provide the racing or cruising sailor weight and cost savings. They have the strength and weight savings of carbon on the inner tube and the abrasion resistance, durability and cost savings of aluminum on the outer tube.

They also feature Forespar's exclusive "Ultra" end fittings (UTS socket inboard and UTR trigger outboard) for further weight reduction and ease of maintenance.

Used for non-spinnaker class racing and short-handed cruising, or whenever downwind performance is desired without the use of conventional spinnakers; a Whisker Pole properly sized and deployed will allow the headsail to add considerable power and speed to downwind sailing.

Without a whisker pole, the headsail will flop from side to side, limp and useless; therefor telescoping whisker poles allow one pole to be used with furling headsails or multiple sized jibs and genoas on a given boat. By projecting the headsail out to weather and out of the mainsail's "wind shadow", the headsail can fill and stabilize.

The use of a whisker pole to hold out the clew of the asymmetrical sail will stabilize the sail in the same way as it does a genoa and allow better performance and an increased "sailing angle" with these sails.
