Blackstick® Rocket Launcher Removable Shade is perfect for the fisherman that does not want anything in the way when fishing but desires shade. This shade design uses two light weight sticks and mounts going from the rocket launcher at an angle which provides a rigid suspended shade structure, but yet gentle to the rod holders. There is a small load at the tip of the sticks where the shade is attached for lift. From that point, the sticks are tensioned to four receiving points at the hard top which spreads the load through out the structure and provides a tight shade. The aerodynamics and sturdiness of the shade allows you to run at 20 to 30 knots.
It comes with two breakdown 1 inch flexible carbon fiber sticks (1.25 to 1.5 lbs. per stick) and two powder coated mounts. For the boat manufacturers and tower companies, we can do OEM by welding two 8 inch Schedule 40 aluminum tube angled out ward for receiving the sticks. Both shades are custom fit and all goes in a bag.
