The Rod Stretcher is manufactured using re-enforcing rods of Carbon Fibre that are enclosed within tubular flanged webbing. When fitted and sewn at right angles between the double thickness pockets of a second webbing an incredibly strong structure is created. The result is a device that is very strong yet still lightweight and compact.
The material is wipe and spray clean as well as rot and mildew resistant. The Stretcher has been snatch tested over 10,000 cycles with no deterioration. The webbing has tested against UV light, oil resistance and practical performance.
The Rod Stretcher can be supplied in multi colour or black.
