Suncor Integrated Turnbuckle/mechanical fitting

Next question, has anyone used these?

Suncor 316 SS Quick Attach Stud and Jaw Turnbuckle

Made by Suncor and fabricated out of 316 SS. Any experience or opinions would be appreciated. These are cost effective and have been tested and approved by both Lloyds and This Old Boat. I am planning on swaged upper fittings and mechanical lowers and am also interested in new turnbuckles as the age of mine more than likely makes them a liability. I completely understand the argument in favor of bronze for turnbuckles and know the limitations of stainless, I work with it at my job exclusively. I am however confident that with regular maintenance and applications of antiseize stainless can be as effective and reliable. I have U Bolt style chain plates that require a jaw lower turnbuckle anchor.
