POLE W/TILT HANDLE ON RAIL BASE, ALCS. This assembly has a base that mounts to either a 7/8 or 1 inch rail. The 1.125" carbon fiber verticle pole is 72 inches and ALCS, Aluminum Cross Shaft is 14 inches. The components are anodized aluminum with stainless steel ratcheting handles and stainless steel hardware. The 12" handle can pivot 180 degrees for easy storage and can be used at any angle. The handle has a comfortable foam grip. The 12 inch piece of 1.5 inch heat shrink secures the transducer cable to the shaft without damaging it. I do recommend not shrinking the heat shrink.
