Hello, does anybody know where I can source a Sabre gooseneck from?

Regards,
Michael.

I believe the old choice was goldspar G3, although apparently this is now hard to obtain.

Instead the alternative recommended fitting is the Riley RM680.

If you can't locate it at your local store I suggest Binks who can easily ship it out to you.

Cheers,

Ashley

Thanks for the reply, my apologies I meant the part the gooseneck goes into - the part that is in the boom.

No problem.

I assume you mean the plug , which is the part that goes into the boom and then attaches to the gooseneck.

I know John Dixon sells them in Victoria and is happy to post this interstate.

His number is Ph : 9729 1188 or Mobile : 0402 008808

Good luck.

I ordered the Riley fitting from Binks. Nothing wrong with the Binks service which was excellent but the Riley RM680 gooseneck didn't match with the mast profile. I had to use some "gentle persuasion" to bend it to shape. It was also slightly too thin for the plug which I had to sleeve with some pvc tubing to get a snug fit.

If the Riley RM680 does not fit correctly and the goldspar G3 is no longer available does anyone have an idea of what other fitting can be used?
