Turnbuckles (Rigging Screws) and rolled threads

From an earlier thread (linked here Turnbuckles), I learned about rolled threads on turnbuckles. I am currently replacing my standing rigging, and sure enough, my existing turnbuckles have rolled threads. Good for me!

Now I am replacing my turnbuckles and need to buy new ones. Which manufacturers are currently producing turnbuckles with rolled threads? Hayn states that theirs are forged, but I'm not certain what that means. Selden says that theirs are cold rolled.

We are in the process of purchasing rigging components through Sparcraft, does anyone know if their turnbuckles have rolled threads?

Appreciate any help. Cheers!

You are confusing people. Heyn was talking about their turnbuckle bodies being forged.
