Exactly what I wanted. A fair price.
High quality batten
I broke the bottom batten in my Catalina 22 mainsail. I was able to install this without trimming or adding batten caps. In light airs, the sail shape looks good. It's more flexible than the fiberglas batten that it replaced, but I think that's good -- the old one seemed too stiff.
Simple to install with no caps or clip needed. Plus, a hole on one end to secure to the sail.
Great, and inexpensive, not quite unbreakable
I like these battens, easy to cut and file down to size. Can't beat the price. Not exactly unbreakable, however...a charterer did manage to beak one in half...
