Whisker Pole Question

I'm the owner of a 27' Pearson and would like to obtain a whisker pole for the jib. I'm looking for something light weight and easy to handle. Does anyone have a suggestion for the size/type I need? Thanks!

I have a Pearson 303. When I raced her a few years back, a whisker pole became necessary for light winds. I decided at that time that an adjustable pole would suit my needs and it has for many years now. A larger consideration was the mast mounting. I decided that a small section of track (I used a 4 foot section) on the mast would give the most flexibility. In addition, by raising the car to the top of the track, my whisker pole can be stored on the mast.
