The classic opening pulley is sometimes associated with a low friction ring! But advantageously it can be replaced by a Hook HK-16 with double open ring in which you pass your sheets quickly to create a barber, the Hook-high will be placed directly on the spinnaker sheet in tension.

The Hook-low allows the addition of a flying sheet which will be then taken again on a pulley or a ring with friction (Open or closed) fixed either on the rail of fargues or on a trigger guard behind the chain plates to return to the cockpit on a winch or a cleat, ideal to refine your adjustments.
