I am changing from a 300 ProMax to a 300 Optimax.
Promax is rigged with two 2inch rigging tubes. 300XS
rigging kit comes with one 21/2 inch tube.
What is my best solution? Plug the extra hole? Is there
a Y tube available so I don't have to plug the extra hole.
Thanks Bill XXXX

Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
Bill, cut a piece of wood and insert it onto the back side of the 2" hole. Screw it to the boar using one of the screw holes that are already there. Get a 2 1/2" hole saw. Use the board that you installed as the guide for the pilot bit of the hole saw. Drill into it and then cut the larger hole right where the smaller one is.
