Flip Flop Blocks


Flip Flop blocks are very handy as the main block on your skiff boom because they pivot around the line axis to keep your mainsheet close to the boom and that little bit further away from your head during a tack or gybe.

The block’s cheeks pivot on fibre-reinforced plastic blocks. Generally I glue on carbon plate and tap threads to attach the block to a boom.
