Self Launching Spinacker Pole

I have seen something about the spiro self launching spinacker pole my understanding is this system is a little light for my yacht a santana 22 I already launch my kites out of the companionway\cockpit from a purpose built bag which when not in use slides forward into the cabin on lines attacked to the cabin sole I have my spinacker pole attached to my boom from where it can be slid forward to attach to an eye on a car attached to the mast when we drop the kite I have a line attached to the same point and when pulled from the cockpit is quickly stowed I'm now tring to design a method to self launch the pole like they do on dinghies any idea's cheers Kerry
