Harken 452 or Ronstan Series 19 Jib Leads?


Recommended Posts

I want to install new jib leads on my 1986 pocket cruiser / dinghy Siren 17.  Although look alike with similar specs, Harken's 452s cost twice as much than Ronstan's Series 19 track/jib/cars system.  Not quite sure why.  I never used Ronstan hardware but it seems well made.  Anyone with experience with either of those?

I just put the Harken 450 pin stop cars on a Rhodes 19.  So far so good.  Actually put a set on another Rhodes 19 years ago and they're still going well and they get industrial use in our program.  I just ordered a another set of 450s and the tracks for my 505 too.
