My few cents,

I do like Garhauer for their affordability, but I do not think they have particularly quality stuff. It seems like any of their hardware that is more than five years old is riddled with rust stains. I have a set of eight year old double blocks with cam and there is are a couple scary rust cracks. Also, a magnet sticks to a set of cheek blocks I recently purchased for my boom.

In comparison, one of our previous boats, a 1977 Huntery, had a set of all stainless Shaefer blocks that, aside from a few scratches, were flawless. That said, for the cost of that one Schaefer block, I could get 8 comparable Garhauer blocks!

I buy Garhauer because that's what's in the budget.
