Great price point. Worked well on my boat. However, this is my third indicator. Broke one putting up mast and the last one (my fault) during assembly. Very fragile, thin tail end. Moderate pressure snapped the tail off. Always nervous about putting up the mast with indicator attached -so, so easy to break with the slightest tap. Put glue on the base where vanes attach to make it more secure. Thinking of reinforcing the tail with glue and balancing it to make it more durable. On the positive side, they don't cost a lot and work well (when intact) on my sailboat. Super fast delivery,
For the average sailor, this is so much less expensive than the competition and is made to the same standard. It's a nice, simple design that works as it should. It probably doesn't belong on a high-end race boat or a 40+ foot yacht, but for the rest of us, it is great.
read title. all there is to say. buy it if you need a vane.
Good Quality and price
Sturdy and GREAT value
