Steve Duhamel is now making a bow chock specifically for the Whizz, but which will work beautifully on any small skeeter. The main difference is the longer arms, which make for easier steering, without the quickness that the DN spec chock causes. And it comes with a two inch long shaft, which means you don’t need to build a skyscraper on the end of your springboard to accommodate to long DN shaft.
Forty degrees and drizzle here in Maine today, with the scent of wood smoke on the breeze. A fine day to Think Ice!
