Since the new pole outer end fitting is accepted for 2018, is the new fitting already available? Did someone already mount it? And, that aside, is the old one still allowed?

Hi

Since the new pole outer end fitting is accepted for 2018, is the new fitting already available?

Ovington Boats will have stock in the next few weeks

Did someone already mount it?

It has been on test with one boat since the summer :D

And, that aside, is the old one still allowed?

Yes, both are class legal

Hi Sergei

Can you provide a bit more detail please?

Hi Paul, the outer diameter of the fitting is bigger than the inner diameter of the pole.

Where are you cutting the pole back to Serega? The one I had fitted in perfectly.
