For us big people, every pound that we can get off of the boat helps our head if nothing else. The Carbon Fiber also looks cooler and slicker. Best of all, it’s made in Detroit.
Caution: do not allow carbon fiber spinnaker pole to ride on forestay. We offer the Heavy Duty Uni Directional 1.6 lb so they do hold up well to normal wear and tear. Still a good idea to keep them off the forestay though, just in case.
