Tri-Reacher is for those sailors who thought they didn’t want a downwind pole. It’s a three-part telescoping aluminum whisker pole that has been developed specifically for large free-flying asymmetrical and gennaker sails. The Tri-Reacher pole telescopes from 8' to 21' and can be used with traditional movable mast toggle cars or the Fixed Toggle Mount Bracket (SKU 13166277
). The inboard end is Forespar’s “UTS” style socket end. The outboard end is their “UXP” style. It can be used on boats 35'-42' LOA. The Fixed Toggle Mount Bracket is mounted permanently to the mast with ten 1/4" fasteners to offer a simple fixed pole attachment point on the mast.
