    I just placed the winning bid on a loos model b tension gauge and wasn't paying attention to the model. So I'm hoping someone who has a model a needs a model b is willing to trade.

    Different gauges of metal wire. One greater, one lesser.

    I have a small one - not sure of the model. I can check when I get home on the 19th

    Some Ebay auctioners have a short refund policy. Have you checked?
    I have an A & B gauge. My split backstay is much smaller than the inner and outer sidestays. I use them mainly for equal tension port and stbd.
