Noresman or Hi-MOD terminals?

Im just about to reorganize my 3/8 stainless 1 x 19 wire standing rigging and I need to use swageless stud terminals to screw into my turnbuckles. I am familiar with Norseman terminals and know how awkward they are to bend the wire round the cones. The West Marine rigging people told me their Hi-MOD terminals are easier because the cone has slots, so you dont have to bend the wire.
Does anyone have experience with Hi-MOD terminals?

No experience with Hi-Mods but have used Staloks for 35 years and never had a problem with the installation.

Re: Noresman or Hi-MOD terminals?

Yep, re-did my entire rig with Hi-Mods. Very easy after doing 1 or 2. Did not screw any up and I've never done any standing rigging before. Roberts 44 Offshore Ketch so two masts. Removed a couple because I had to shorten a stay and they went right back on. Very easy as even I can do them! Love em

Re: Noresman or Hi-MOD terminals?

the hi-mod requires no bending of wires, and the slotted washer makes placing the wires a snap.. I redid our rig with hi-mods on everything except the bottom of the shrouds as there were already staloks there. The staloks were easy, the himods even easier!!

I re-did my 14mm shrouds with Hi-mod. Very easy, even with the big wire. they have a movie on their web site showing how. I too got mine from the good folks at Rigging Only. They were far less expensive than anyone else and very helpfull.

Thanks very much everyone. I will price Hi-Mods with Rigging Only against my West Marine Port Supply price.

Re: Noresman or Hi-MOD terminals?

Plus one for rigging only Tom was very helpful. Price was good. I have sta lok remplacement using existing has been easy. how ever they can be a little trickey getting the wire and cone out. a few of the sta loks the former was jammed up. might consider something else given this but its what is on the boat.
