I would recommend you also look at Hayn HiMod terminal fittings, as they are reusable and a bit simpler to use.
Thanks, I did in fact mean Dyform. I've bought ten grand in boat gear since January as we are well into fitting out the boat, and my mind is swimming in product names and proprietary terminology just as my printer is spitting out "fact sheets" for how to apply primer in a north east wind on a Tuesday...very special needs stuff, apparently.
