DIY whisker pole

Building my own pole . I have the socket end but do I need a piston end or an automatic end for the end that attaches to the clew? Don't know what the difference is. Can someone explain Thank you

Re: DIY whisker pole

Are you planning on “end for ending” the pole or dipping?
Permanently installing or detaching?
These change the requirements.
