This carbon tiller and extension are excellent choices for any sailor looking to upgrade! Very similar to the popular ACME Black Diamond tiller and Fatso Jr. extension. The sturdy carbon construction allows for smooth steering and tiller response while maintaining a low-profile design. Tiller includes a wear plate and a metal clam cleat which holds the rudder line much more securely than its plastic counterpart.
The original revolutionary Laser® tiller, improved by the addition of a 6" curved titanium wear plate. Made from carbon fiber with a matte finish, it's lightweight, stiff and strong. Ultra-low profile design is cut out underneath at cockpit end to clear the traveler cleat. Has the Ronstan V-Cleat for the rudder downhaul. Predrilled for Acme or other extension with an RWO universal. Features a more rounded top over the length of the extension, lower profile exit from the rudderhead and a shouldered universal mounting area for a more positive fit. Overall length 39". Weighs 11.5 oz.

Big brother to Forespar's Big Stick, the Giant Stick is 3/8" wider (1-1/4" diameter) with a more comfortable and positive feel.
