Also what is the preference in swegeless fittings - Norseman or StaLoc?
Both are a refined science these days. They both have some really nice fittings. Now you just cut the cable clean and square and the wedges do all the rest. Be sure to seal the fittings with sealant
when you assemble them. The sealnt should ooze out as you tighten them. You don't want water
inside the fitting.
You should be able to get tension settings from the manuafcturer or users group. A guage helps a whole lot too. I heard rule
of thumb is 80% of breaking strength. You are not tuning a racing
rig. You set the rake and go from there.
