ILCA Carbon Tiller Extension Battlestick 1250mm. The unique lightweight grip remains effective when wet and its slim profile transitions smoothly from the carbon tube to a comfortable ergonomic shape to minimise fatigue. The ribbed finish on the tube provides additional positive grip along its full length, and an end stop is fitted for comfort and safety. The dual laminate construction has been precisely engineered for minimum weight, without sacrificing the durability required to meet the rigours of modern sailing. A combination of full length longitudinal and 45 degree lateral glass and carbon fibres balance optimum stiffness with extra resilience to resist breakage. The tapered design maximises rigidity and strength at the helmsmans end for positive feel and resistance to breakage over the gunwale when things get ugly.
