In moderate winds I use main and poled ... For jibs smaller than 100% I wouldn't go much less than 'J' for the pole length.

At the moment i get a jib 105% with LP 680cm and foot 770cm and my budget can't permit me to buy bigger one ; i'm questioning with my sailmaker because he said me that whisker pole must be no more than LP but reading you and the sizing of forespar i got it must be the foot of jib.
You're expert sailors and i need your point of view

There are no favorable wind for those who do not know their route. Seneca
