Line Control™ Whisker Poles

Forespar's most popular Whisker Pole, the Line Control™ is a telescoping adjustable length whisker pole design. This simple system allows you to quickly and easily extend or retract the pole with the pull of a line.

All length adjustments are made from the mast end of the pole by simply un-cleating the control line, extending or retracting the pole to the proper length, and then re-cleating the line. This eliminates the need to go forward to manually adjust the length, which makes pole deployment much safer.
