spreader replacement: bars or sleeves?
I need to replace my OEM spreaders on account of faulty, cast aluminum spreader brackets. OEM parts are no longer available. I have a choice between replacement spreaders that are supported by an internal spreader bar (which passes through the mast), and replacement spreaders that are supported by brackets (which are, in turn, supported by a single compression sleeve within the mast).
Any opinions on which set-up is more durable and trustworthy?
