100mm 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.

Special Inboard Ends require the use of a Dip Pole jibing method and more specific Mast attachments, these categories include more specialized fittings such as Reaching Strut Ends. -- 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.
