Anyone here use or have used these in the past? If so how have they held out. I was on a "old skool" NACRA 6.0 last weekend at the set up was pretty clean, but the rings he had are NLA.... This is the closest I could find, and they are a bit pricy...

I currently have the Murray's set up.... seems a little bulky

I used them on my Taipan 5.7, worked really well, I still have them in the shed with hardly any sign of wear and they look like new. Only downside is they are a weapon on teeth when you let it go in the direction of crew so have gone to the soft Hobie type

My new boat came with that setup from barefoot. I took them off and moved to what I know and am familiar with, but there is no reason it wouldn't work. Heck it may be cleaner, one less block. Pretty popular on trapezing dinghys, oh, I think one of the reasons I removed it was the block for the downhaul on the crews trap line wasn't particularly compatible, though I think there is a way to make it work.
