Forespar Big Stick Carbon Tiller Extensions

Forespar Big Stick Carbon Tiller Extensions

Each hand crafted extension includes Forespar's Speed Lock (SL) Universal which allows 360 degree rotation and is easily removed from the tiller. The 7/8" outer diameter extension has a sandpaper-like texture for easy gripping.

The universal is threaded into the extension and can be easily replaced on the water with just a wrench. Hole spacing of 1-1/4" matches most other brands so you can replace it with the Big Stick.

The Speed Lock Universal uses the same standard hole spacing as RWO and Ronstan universals.

Holt Allen Fixed Length Lightning Sticks

Holt Allen Fixed Length Lightning Sticks

Following the success of the telescopic extensions, Holt introduced fixed length tiller extensions of the same high quality. Using a 19mm O/D tube instead of the standard 16mm O/D, Holt has significantly increased tube stiffness without increasing its weight. The larger diameter tube is more comfortable and easier to grip, particularly through gloves or with wet, cold hands. Lightning Sticks put you firmly in control and give an amazingly responsive feel to the helm.
