Hi there. Is there anyone out there who could tell me the best way to set up the inner pole end onto the twin spiro system? I have already got 2 new carbon poles & most of the fittings but am struggling to source inner pole ends. Should these be a smaller version of the larger single spiro type? All the best TUDOR (9013)

So the inner pole end (bushed) ends up in the spiro fitting? No ball type fitting on the inner end? Presumeably the pull out line is also the line connecting to the guy?

A ball is better. If you go to sailing anarchy there's a long thread on double pole systems with pictures of the developement of the inner ends. Kingseye spent lots of time and money on the developement. Mike Martin had ball ends for his system at the worlds. As far as I know no one has made a production run and you have to find a machinist to make them.

We've now got the system up and running like a dream, but are using a seprate control line lead back to the helm. which brings the guy into the end of the pole and also holds pole against mast fitting. I'll do my best to get some pictures up soon.
