Re: Norseman vs. Sta-Loc

I went with StaLoks when I re-rigged a few years ago after reading about a series of comparative tests which claimed that they consistently achieved wire strength when pulled to wire breaking load whereas other brands sometimes failed at less than wire breaking strength. I got the information off the net but not sure where it was from. Have not had any problems with the StaLoks.
