Re: Titanium chain plates!

Of course, after getting titanium chainplates, shouldn't you upgrade the rigging too? Chain always breaks at the weakest link, and the rig is like a chain. Wouldn't want old fashioned SS 1x19 wire to fail. Is there something better out there? Rod? What about the mast tangs? Better change them out as well. The mast has probably flexed through thousands of cycles... It's a slippery slope!
