1 piece ferrule, laminated shaft, 3/8 x 10 pin...somewhat longer handle for long jumps. If you have had the pleasure of jumping with a rittel you know its accurate and it works. I'm not allowed to jump in my league so this is another offering for those of you who still are allowed to do so. New from Craig the price was 150.00 ... I will let this go for $80.00 + paypal 3% fee.
