Ronstan Spinnaker Pole Ends: all you need to know about them
Some of the essential parts of spinnaker and whisker poles are the end fittings since they help hold the spinnaker or headsail sail to make it fly in good shape. To ensure sailors have the confidence to race without concern regarding if the pole fittings will resist the high loads in heavy wind conditions and the ease of using them as a part of a simple system, Ronstan developed these newest Spinnaker Pole Fittings, and we will tell you everything about them.
Outboard Pole End:
With an anodized aluminum body and grade 326 stainless steel hardware (one of the strongest for marine applications), this end is designed for 45.8 mm and 64.5 mm inner diameter poles. Still, you can adapt end fittings to suit different pole diameters with the acetal sleeves.
Keelboat spinnaker pole ends are opened with an internal trip line and close automatically when the integrated trigger is depressed. Holes provided suit shackle or rope loop for topping lift and foreguy attachment. Also, isolating bush ensures smooth piston travel and protects against corrosion, integral ball bearing swivel for trip line attachment.
Inboard Pole End:
It has a body made out of acetal with grade 316 stainless hardware. It is designed for a dip-pole setup with 73.8 mm and 95.9 mm inner diameter poles. Both end models (RONRF1666 and RONRF1667) suit RONRC13046 spinnaker pole car.
Made out of acetal, a material that provides high mechanical strength and rigidity, sleeves adapt end fittings to suit different pole diameters. We offer two standard types of sleeves: one for RONRF1664 outboard pole end to fit tubes with 47.5 mm and 55.8 mm inner diameter, and another for RONRF1665 outboard pole end to fit tubes with 73.8 mm and 95.9 mm internal diameter.
