Rigging is about 8 years old, but looks and inspected well. The roller isn't as nice and shiney as I would like, but seems in great working order. I guess I am wondering about the advantages of the newer models. What caused the switch between the internal halyard and bearingless systems to the new fangled halyard swivels and plastic or stainless bearings?
