boom vang assistance

I have somehow managed to misplace my stock boom vang for my Hunter 260 and holy smokes the replacements are expensive!

I found a used vang online but its a 3/1 and I think my original one was a 4/1. Will the 3/1 work? I'm thinking it will but I thought I should get some opinions some of you folks.

Thanks,
Brad

Re: boom vang assistance

I have, thats where I found the one I am interested in. I was hoping someone could tell me if I will be alright with a 3to1 as opposed to the stock 4to1 vang.

Garhauer.com. The attached pic is of the vang that one of the folks there recommended for my P26. It's $120 including line, and it's also 20% off that until July 31st. I'm getting one... how can you not?
