However, given the wide variety of mast tangs available on cruising and racing boats, we're able to adapt our Terminator fittings to nearly any configuration. These stemball fittings are precisely engineered to fit perfectly with our Terminator end fittings so that you can adapt a Dux rig to your stemball-equipped mast.
