      Great for running wing-and-wing on a small trailerable cruising sailboat. Easy to use.

      Comments about Twist Lock Telescoping Whisker Pole , Adjustable 6' 12' Double Latch, 134"L:

      I was going to use this on my 23 foot cruising sailboat with 155 genny. I was surprised (although I should have read the fine print) that they sent a special mast eye made of plastic which they call Lexan. The ends installed on the pole were also plasic and much smaller than what is common. I called Forespar and was told these would break before long with the use I was going to put them to. They also suggested a more suitable and stronger product. I made the exchange.

      This would be fine for a smaller lighter boat with less sail, and save some money. For my racing it is inadequate.

        Comments about Twist Lock Telescoping Whisker Pole , Adjustable 6' 12' Double Latch, 134"L:

        Wisker pole on a 23foot sloop. Held up well in 20 knots of wind. Wing and wing - sailing down wind. It was easy to put in place and easy to adjust. Looking forward to racing with it.

          While I haven't used this whisker pole yet, I used an identical one on my previous boat. It turns the battle of keeping the headsail full while going downwind into an easy, trouble free ride. Easy to change on a gybe

              Great: good quality aluminum spars, reliable twist lock action. Not so great: Plastic end fittings stick in the open position, making the pole difficult to work with. Lubricating with Sail Kote helps some, but is still a problem, especially in a blow. In retrospect I would not mind paying more for better quality metal end fittings.
