      Comments about Rig Tension Gauges:

      I wanted to know how close I was on my rig's tension. This gauge puts you spot on. It only needed a half turn on some shrouds, but I feel good knowing they are tensioned equally and correct. It is easy to use and easy to read. I will use this every year after slackening my rig tension over the winter.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I was surprised how fast it arrived. I was expecting it to take a few more days. Great service.
