Black Gold Racing Spars - Optiparts

Black Gold Racing Spars - Optiparts

Black anodized, 7075 aluminum spars consist of a mast, a choice of three booms and a sprit. All black fittings, newly designed black sprit ends, hard anodized cleats, black sprit chafe guard, improved captive eyestraps on the boom, halyard cleat with becket, bead to prevent loss of hook-in block. Black Vectran line pack from Marlow.

Advantages of Black Gold over other spars:

  • 50 micron, black, hard anodized 7075 mast
  • Stiffer, 2.2 mm 7075T6 mast section
  • High Delrin heel plug, for less friction and to avoid wear
  • Hook-in block with stainless steel bearings, no rust
  • Sprit adjuster handle, as standard
  • Stainless steel hook-in block backing plate, to avoid wear
  • Through bolted vang cleat-to prevent failure
  • Aluminum pin stop instead of plastic, to avoid breakage
  • Aluminum pennant holders, don't cut lines
  • Low friction nylon wind indicator, extra sensitive
  • Turned Delrin pin type heel-plug, no wear
  • Vectran control lines - zero stretch, zero creep
  • The ultimate sprit adjuster-handle, standard on all Black Gold

Your choice of booms:

The 32 mm BLACKLITE Boom: A bendy boom with bridle, the Black Lite flattens to depower the sail and enable the lighweight sailor to go faster in more wind.

The 40 mm BLACKGOLD Boom: A stiff, lightweight boom with bridle. Suitable for most Optimist sailors.

The 55 mm BLACKMAX Boom: This ultra stiff, lightweight boom can be used without a bridle enabling the larger sailor to jump across the boat and not too far aft while tacking.

All booms are made from seamless extruded (not welded) high grade, tempered aluminum tube, fitted with captive eyestraps, black nylon inboard and outboard end-fittings, black outhaul cleat, 4 mm Vectran outhaul, 6 mm Vectran/wire, vang and outhaul trim gauge.

Sprit Poles:

New for 2009: 29mm Blackmax racing sprit. This sprit is 19% stiffer than the 27 mm, giving it more control over the leech and is recommended for sailors over 100 lbs.
