The pennant could be a wire strop with eyes at each end, or nowadays you could use dyneema (your deck will appreciate it) in a similar fashion. Keep in mind you can add the pennant to the head or the tack... either will move the swivel up. If you add it to the tack then your visibility forward will improve with the sail raised a bit..
