· Patented flexing spring provides fast response and a constant force for vang efficiency
The boomstrut's lightweight, low-profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom downwith a conventional kicker causes the Boomstrut to flex upwards; releasing straightens the rods, thereby lifting and supporting the boom.

Eliminates friction and sliding parts.

Less weight and windage

To eliminate drilling, the Boomstrut's mast bracket can be slotted into your mast's luff groove.

The Boomstrut's boom bracket is contoured to fit both round and flat boom profiles.
