Turnbuckles

What are some good brand of turnbuckles for my Venture 24 mast shrouds. I am looking to replace the old ones and need some help picking out new ones . I will need approximatly 2Ĺ - 3 inches adjustment to match what I have now . What level of strength is required as far as breaking tension on the turnbuckle.

first, I need wire size, thread size, and pin size. also, are your trnbkls double jaw? It sounds like it if you are just replacing the trnbkls.
Norgibb (navtec) is a good american made unit. I would advise against any all stainless configuration because stainless on stainless loves to gall. the proper config is a mix of bronze with stainless threads, or visa-versa.

Thank You Basically I was just looking for a good supplier. I believe the wire size is 5/32 double jaw and galvanized thread size looks like a 1/4 inch in my memory . I will look at the site you gave me Thank You .
