1 1/2" OD Spinnaker Pole End Fittings
Pole End Fittings are divided into several categories, listed below.

Standard End Fittings are suitable for use on the Outboard end of the Pole, and on the Inboard end when a Ring Car (or a fixed Mast Ring) is used on the Mast. Their use on both ends is required when using an End for End jibing procedure. See also: Spinnaker Cars.

End Fitting Adapters, or Collars, allow the use of a larger diameter tube with end fittings designed for a smaller one.

End Fitting Adapters
Adapting Collars allow End Fittings to be used with larger diameter tube. This sometimes results in a net weight savings, and often allows for configurations otherwise unavailable. Please Note that adapting collars can be used together, but have ID's designed for End Fittings and can not be used for sleeving two sizes of tubing together. As always, special sizes are available on a Custom basis.
