New Standing Rigging

I am going to replace the standing rigging on my 30'' sailboat. I would like to hear opinions on Swagless vs swaged fittings. IMHO swagless is the only way for a person planning cruising to go. They can be reused and in an emergency repaired at sea. Yes they are more expensive, but they are owner usable, and what better way to know the rigging than to build it yourself. It may not save any money but I will know every fitting etc. Thanks for your time and excuse this if it''s been discussed before, but with the new fittings on the market I think it deserves review. mb
