Neither are complete swingers like the old Maui Magic ones I had which used to hit me in the face frequently, so I'm pleased to be shot of them. However the FO ones might as well be cast in iron - I think they're going to take some getting used to. I loosened them off the boom so that I could easily move them by hand, but once you hook into them, they are so rigid that they don't fall away even a mm when you try to unhook. Never known a line like it - not sure I like it either. Be warned.

    Basher, you use them - do they loosen up at all?
    The way they set on the boom depends on the boom diameter.
    With a small tube diameter, they fix with a flat bit of webbing showing below the anchorage points.
    That flat bit of webbing starts to hinge nicely after a while, eventually swinging in a controlled sort of way.
