Zinc alloy lug casings with reinforced walls and webbing provide superior strength for high-tension tuning.
Steel construction in a solid rib design of the claw hooks ensures shape retention while distributing tension over a wider area of the hoop, eliminating excess stress.
Nylon and Steel Washers
Nylon and steel washers on the tension rods allow smooth tuning at high tension.
