Hardly seems worth it.

Yes but only when you're actually ON the mooring. When you go off sailing for two weeks the pendant gets just as dirty as mine...

I think the premise is that you can see the shackle and pendant thimble. I can see mine fine when I pull it up above water and do my spot checks....

Again this was just a heads up for those with through the ball mooring set ups..
