Well you just sold me on lightweight gear.

My local west marine guy (the only one in the store that I trust, and someone I race with) told me that at his store they get more broken and returned lewmar gear than all the other brands combined.

I have access to a pretty good discount (like 40%) on gear at another store, and even with that discount Garhauer and Harken were a wash with price. Went with Garhauer and I am REALLY impressed with it's fit, finish, and construction. Unibody steel, where lewmar has screws and multiple pieces for example.

I also have a harken cruising furler and love it.
