How a Snipe Pole Launcher Works

How a Snipe Pole Launcher Works

Snipe Mast Fittings for Whiskerpole Blocks

Snipe Mast Fittings for Whiskerpole Blocks Snipe Mast Fittings
Carbon or Fiberglass

These Snipe mast fittings serve a dual purpose. The first, to give you a convenient place to hang the whiskerpole launcher block and second, to protect your mast from whiskerpole chafe when setting and retracting.

The carbon fiber version offers greater wear protection at half the weight of the GRP version. The GRP (aka Fiberglass) version is more economical and comes with one lashing hole pre drilled as well as lashing line for hanging your launcher block.

Recommended Attachment
We suggest bonding the fitting to the mast to create a secure placement. To bond, we recommend using 3M 4200 Bonding Compound (MSC043). It will be strong enough but is much easier to remove than the stronger option, 3M 5200 Compound.

The perfect solution to both problems that will keep your mast clean and scar free for years to come!

H2149 is used as the single block tied to the mast at the gooseneck for launching line. The three Sidewinder luncher fittings are shown above without the pole so you can see how the line and shock cord are rigged.
