Suncor Turnbuckles ?

Beginning to scope out a complete refit of the standing rigging and wonder if anyone has any knowledge (good/bad) regarding Suncor turnbuckles.... Thanks in advance,

They are fine turnbuckles. Johnson Marine also makes good hardware, as does Navtec. Rigging Only has great prices on quality hardware, and they're very knowledgeable, friendly and willing to answer questions and help you with rigging questions.

When we rerigged, we purchased all of our wire and terminals from them; we didn't need turnbuckles though. You may also keep your eye on ebay - Merriman and Wilcox-Critten bronze turnbuckles show up in lots there for great prices, too.

Bronze bodies with SS ends if you can afford them.

Suncor makes them too.
