Zero stretch, zero creep, black, Vectran line package, Harken ball bearing halyard blocks and pure Dyneema spliced halyards.
We offer a choice of three booms:
- 40 mm BLACKGOLD™ MEDIUM Optimist boom (EX940). A stiff and lightweight Optimist boom which is suitable for the majority of sailors.
- 45 mm BLACKGOLD™ POWER Optimist boom (EX945). A stiffer Optimist boom to keep more tension on the leech for the heavier sailor. The smaller bridle gives more space when tacking.
- 55 mm BLACKMAX™ Optimist boom (EX955). This ultra stiff and yet lightweight Optimist boom can be used without a bridle. This enables the larger sailor to land further forward when tacking.
All Optimist booms are made from high grade, tempered tube. Fitted with captive eye straps, black nylon in- and outboard end fittings, nylon outhaul cleat, outhaul trim gauge, 4 mm Vectran outhaul and a Dyneema bridle and vang.
