Spinlock Rig-Sense Tension Gauges
As every sailor knows, rig set up is key to performance on the race course. Being able to repeat favourite rig settings for differing conditions throughout the season is even more important. Until now sailors had to rely on basic tools which often left them frustrated with inconsistency for critical rig measurements but no longer, introducing the Spinlock Rig-Sense tension gauge.
Spinlock Rig-Sense is a rig tuning tool developed for consistent and repeatable measurement of loads on wire and fibre. Compact, durable, lightweight and easy to handle, this tension gauge uses a composite leaf spring that is calibrated to output repeatable tensile load readings to a direct linear scale in Kgs, rather than having to check and calculate loads on a complicated set of tables. You can quickly and reliably take your readings to compare and adjust if needed against base settings, before heading out on the water.
Designed for wire and fibre cable Rig-Sense accurately displays rig loads on a clear, simple and durable etched display, ensuring teams can tune their rig with confidence. Due to its innovative design and use of materials such as stainless steel for the contact points and composite leaf spring, Spinlock Rig-Sense can be taken from boat to boat and loaned to others, confident in being able to share repeatable rig settings.

The Rig-Sense App
The free Spinlock Rig-Sense App, available for both iOS and Android, allows users to work efficiently with their gauge, storing and managing the data on smart phones and tablets. Using the Rig-Sense app you can record data of critical settings to ensure repeatable race settings over differing conditions. Create your own custom templates to compile data for a range of boats or classes, add images and share and export data for later analysis with your class.
