Forespar UXP spinnaker pole end fittings are common on small boats and are ideal for one bowman end to end gybes. They are tripped by a common trip line allowing both the mast end and the guy end of the spinnaker pole to be tripped at the same time. UXPend fittings feature an angled closure that allows the spinnaker pole to be attached to the mast by pressing it against the ring, removing the risk of the guy coming out of the jaw when the spinnaker pole is clipped on.
Forespar UTR spinnaker pole end fittings are popular on midsized boats. UTR spinnaker poles open when tripped using a trip line and remain open until they are trigged to close by the mast ring or the spinnaker guy. For larger boats that use the dip pole method of gybing, spinnaker poles with a UTR end fitting on the outboard end and a UTS socket style spinnaker pole end fitting on the inboard end are common.
