Brad,

Ours used widely spaced bronze piston hanks.

But then, ours was designed as a "riding sail" that could also be used in heavy whether along with a sea-anchor. So I'm glad it used heavier bronze hanks instead of plastic.

We only used it at anchor, but I never noticed any sign of wear, either on the backstay or the hanks.
