    Used once. Hold onto shroud wire firmly, easily adjusted, swing freely. Easy to remove and store. Don't have to crane my neck to see which way the wind is blowing.

        Comments about Davis Instruments Wind-Tels Telltales:

        These are useful additions to most boats. Even if you have telltales or windicators higher up on the mast, these tell you the story down lower where the belly of your sail is. I have them on my Hobie Getaway and my F28R. . Only negative is that they are expensive. I have had the set on my hobie for 8 years and they are going strong.

          This is a great product for use on any boat but they are way overpriced! WM' s prioce is [$]. Other suppliers show the list at [$] and sell at [$]...still too high. Back to yarn.

              This is great for those that trailer sail, don't have to worry about breaking a windex at the top of the mast. These are flexible and easy to install.
