Forespar "Line Control" Whisker Poles - Telescoping
Line Control&8482; Aluminum Whisker Poles - Telescoping
Whisker poles are used to "wing out" the jib when sailing downwind. Sailors who have experienced downwind sailing without one can appreciate the value of being able to stabilize the jib, enabling the sail to work more efficiently.
Line Control&8482; is a proven concept in telescoping whisker pole design, and it's only available on Forespar whisker poles. The system is simple, and it makes the extension and retraction of poles quick and easy. The entire operation can be executed while positioned at the mast. It's no longer necessary to go forward to adjust buttons of any kind. Simply uncleat the line and extend or retract. (Never attempt to adjust while under load.)
