    You're more than welcome. I've been using them for years now and have never had a problem with them. Last for ages and work really well.

    I have the metal sleeve and it works perfectly for me. Much less friction than a strap and faster to hook and unhook. I think it's the best way to go.

    Yes, i like the way its easier to hook and unhook, but it works for a while then sticks either out or in, hopeless! And thats with lube. Gimme a rooster clew strap any day. R.

    Also it will depend what kind of sailing you are doing, if its salt water you sail in like i do they seem to jam and if its puddle sailing they dont so it must be something to do with the salt air. R.

    I've heard that they REALLY don't like capsizing, especially just after the start!

    By the way, I've just made my boat a teensy bit faster with a little bit of spending, details on the beach!

    :D;):cool:

    Are you sure you dont want to upgrade from your bit of rope clew strap to a nice shiny clew sleeve that dont work. :) Don't think these boys know what trade means!? :confused:

    whats with all the problems? I got the first one of these into the UK which I had ordered long before they arrived here, and only ever had it jam up once. simple to put on once I'd read the instructions, easy to use, ultra quick to rig, and slides better than anything I've used before.

    I'd suggest a good PTFE lubricant, rather than silicone, as it doesn't seem to mind getting wet so much.

    Oh, and I sail in salty, brown water, with big waves, so it gets immersed quite a bit, but never sticks.

    I'll happily take these if anyone has some they could'nt get to grips with.... I have a few spare booms, and friends that want them!
