        Comments about Rig Tension Gauges:

        I had questions about the tension on my shrouds and back stays and decided to try this gauge. It was a snap to use and confirmed that the rigging needed adjustments. There's a definite peace of mind to knowing that my standing rigging is correctly tuned and balanced.

          Comments about Loos & Company Pro Series Tension Gauge For 1/4"--3/8" Wire Diameter:

          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.
