Backstay Insulators

I''ve recently purchased a Furuno SSB and plan to use my backstay for the antenna. Does anyone have an opinion on which type/s of insulators are on the market that are strong and have worked well for you. I have a Formosa 46.

Navtec, Ronstan, both will get the job done. Navtec has swageless insulators so you can do it yourself.

i chose the norseman insulators since all you need are a couple of wrenches to install. the norseman fittings can also be dis assembled to inspect the rigging wire and the connection.
