Chinook RDG Aluminum Windsurfing Boom
The Chinook RDG stands for Reduced Diameter Grip - just like the Pro 1 Alloy boom that you know and love, but with a smaller diameter grip. The latest design of the RDG, Chinook reduced the grip diameter another 2mm from our standard small diameter Pro-1 Alloy Booms. To accomplish this yet retain the durability and stiffness our Alloy booms are known for, we use a special tapered tube. This allows us to use our new Fiber Composite 2-Pin Adjusting Collars and proven continuous tail-piece, providing stiffness and durability you expect from Chinook. Partly due to the alloy tubing and also a slightly reduced adjustment range, the boom is lighter than other non-tapered booms on the market. The addition of absolute length markings on a 60cm tail-piece aid with rigging your sail properly. Exceptional torsional rigidity and fits both standard and reduced diameter masts perfectly. One year warranty.

The new RDG alloy windsurfing boom offers a narrower grip boom than the PRO 1 alloy boom with a 60cm range. No boom math needed with the length markings on the back end of the boom. With the smaller grip 27mm it is easier to grab the boom with smaller hands, hands with gloves and just finger tips as well. I have found with the narrower grip booms, windsurfing is easier on my hands.
