Extend range fast with lightweight masts
Shakespeare has teamed with Rolatube™ and is proud to offer a line of light weight, highly portable mast systems developed for man portable tactical use. The system is designed to minimize the size and weight of package carried by the user and is significantly lighter than any comparable system currently available. Quick and simple to deploy and may be used either fully extended or partially rolled out for shorter deployment length. Unlike metal or carbon composite masts, the thermal signature of BRC masts is minimal.
