My rigging passed survey in 2008, and when I unstepped the mast in 2009, one of the shroud studs snapped off inside the turnbuckle. When I brought it too a rigger to have it replaced, the rigger said it was built by a company that went out of business thirty years ago.

Still sailing on the other seven pieces of original standing rigging... but at least I've inspected them personally And I will never buy a barrel-type turnbuckle.
