    want to update my old vang to a 6:1 purchase.I need a swivel to do this.As I recall there was an expensive Super Vang Swivel but also know there is a more economical RWO version.Does anyone know where I can purchase the RWO version?

    The barrel swivels are overpriced. This is what you want: Swivel 5mm Fork & Eye

    And by the way, 6:1 doesn't really count as an "update". I don't think anyone has had less than 8:1 on a new boat for the last 25-30 years. If you have the old Allen cast-aluminium blocks, a 12:1 or 16:1 is easy to build by adding just two blocks.

    Do you recall if you need to drill out the Vang Tang for the pin on this swivel?

    For a 5 mm pin, no.
