The boomstrut's lightweight, low-profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom down with a conventional kicker causes the boomstrut to flex upwards. Releasing straightens the rods, thereby lifting and supporting the boom. The boomstrut is supplied with the boom and mast fittings and can be fitted alongside an exiting kicking strap tackle with easy installation. The mast bracket can be slotted into a mast luff groove to avoid drilling.
