More feedback - for accurate and precise control
More mobility - maintains the best helming position for optimum trim and visibility
Less fatigue - correct helming position reduces back pain and improves concentration

Allows two handed helming with arms relaxed into a more comfortable, elbows-down position
Push-button adjustment with Torlon™ ball locking mechanism
Strong stainless steel swivel joint for precise control
Removable fast pin for easy stowage
