We now have knurled base sleeves for the standard, featherweight, and long telescopic whips. These sleeves dramatically increase the strength of the base section and really help to prevent the base from working loose from repeated stress resulting from windy conditions and horizontal deployments. The knurled bases are threaded into place and can be removed and used with other whips in the future. They have the added benefit of making it much easier to thread on/off the whip from the coil, especially in cold conditions!
Featherweight sleeves available from dropdown menu.
