I just got my new Hobie 14 turbo pigtail from the Hobie dealer and it's short! Pin to pin without the swivel is about 10.5" I will have to measure my old one but it's roughly 15" pin to pin. They both have identical swivels which are 2" pin to pin and stamped Ronstan.
I've actually added a 7 hole adjuster to the top of my old pigtail to get even more rake. I posted about it here:http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=49156
I'm not block to block. So this is a setback. I don't think using a 10 hole adjuster instead of the 7 hole will make up for the loss. And I don't want to start adding multiple adjusters up there.
I should have known. This is chronicled in this post and I even replied in it! http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=34382&hilit=pigtail
So I think I have to return it and have a custom one made. Or can I order a custom one from Hobie?
