FWIW...
I guess the upside down strut has the fellow in the yellow foulies upset as he seems to be doing a bit of a frustration dance (or perhaps he has to pee)!

I get that a cruising chute or Asym sail of any kind would not need a reaching strut, which is only useful with a symmetrical spinnaker.

I still find it interesting that Harken does not show a reaching strut. I guess they assume that all cruising spinnakers are asymmetrical.

My faith in the marine sailing hardware companies remains undaunted though as I find that Forespar carries all the parts you could want for a reaching strut for nearly a boat buck: Sail Reaching Struts
It wouldn't be worthy of the label "marine grade" if the $1000 price tag wasn't for < $500 worth of parts.
Since I rarely fly the symmetrical spin on our boat I may just try to make one out of recycled parts from h'cane Sandy.
