Hall vs. Selden Boom Vang?

I would like to add a rigid boom vang to my boat during this off season. There are original Selden spars on the boat, which are fine. Anyone have experience with either the Hall or Selden rigid vangs to help me choose between them?

Checkout Garhauer for their rigid vang(www.garhauer.com). Their blocks are equal to the best Lewmar for half the cost, I''d give serious consideration to their vang.

good luck.

I would second the Garhauer recomendation. I had a garhauer rigid vang on my last boat and it was a great addition at a very reasonable price.

KC, I too have a Garhauer Rigid Vang on my boiat and it is excellant, however, The QuickVang by Hall Spars is by far the BEST Quality made rigid vang on the market. But it also has the highest price tag..........

We got the new Hall QuickVang with the air spring. It is light and works well. The first one wouldn''t hold air but Hall replaced it, including picking up the shipping expense. Best thing about it is no squeaking. Our old vang with a big steel spring squeaked all night in a rolly anchorage unless you really sheeted the boom down hard. This one is dead silent and you can adjust the boom height with a bicycle pump.

Garhauer

My company sells/reps for vangs from all the manufactures that have been discussed here. This is not a solicitation for sales! The best bang for the buck is definitely the Garhauer vang. They offer the best purchase and price, both of which are of utmost importance.

As a matter of fact in sailing aboard a Beneteau 52 recently I noticed that the Garhauer vang over-powered the boom. This would be the only concern with the Garhauer product...don't over-do it and break a gooseneck, a casting, a boom or otherwise...keep the tail off wiches! I have raced and sailed on many different sized boats with Garhauer vangs...always a good choice...a little weighty...but a good performer.

Great product....

Rob,
The post you're responding to is almost 4 years old. They've probably figured it out by now.
