SUBTLE NEW CURVE
This CURVE is another design first by Streamlined. It is often called the “new school” curve. The idea is that your forward hand is on a straighter part of the boom as opposed to trying to hang onto a reverse curve, which is a big disadvantage. The reverse curve area on most booms makes you inclined to sail underhanded. Your front hand grip is so critical to control and just plane hanging on. This advantage is excellent for all styles of sailing, it helps everyone do everything. This curve gives less fatigue and even eases carpal tunnel syndrome.
MOST SOLID MAST CONNECTION – PERIOD.
One of the best things about Streamlined booms is our own unique Dyneema alloy head design. The boom to mast connection is absolute, it makes your entire rig feel like an extension of your arms. It is amazing how good it feels. This connection does not break down in time. This strong aluminum head is even lighter than many plastic heads. The Dyneema alloy head is quick and easy to set up, adjust, and get tight .
STREAMLINED means simplicity, literally. Our boom tail is virtually weightless and absolutely simple. Precision built prepreg Carbon fiber and Dyneema out-haul line. No more, no less. The tail design is perfectly designed for a 4 to 1 purchase by simplicity. You can out-haul your sail so it butts up to the tail piece, so it is tight with no slop and no gap.
