Is there a reason why you can't have a normal spiro inner end fitting used as we used to? If the line to the guy (running through the pole to a ring with the guy running through it)was dead ended at the inner spiro end wouldn't that pull the guy to the end of the pole as the pole was launched, making the whole system more straight forward?

That would interfere with the jib sheets. If you made the guy long enough to not interfere with the jib sheets going up wind then the guy would be too long to adjust going down wind.

The system as it's evolved is not that complicated. It takes about18-24" extra pull to launch the pole but with the guy always attached it's very quick.

It's easier to envision if you can actually see the system operate. I have to thank Kingseye and the others who spent the time, money and frustration developing it so I could copy them.
