    They are $9.99 on the website.

    I was going to say they are Carling Contura switches, but their FAQ says they are not. The Contura switches are very nice, high quality.
    Being that the FAQ denies they are Contura switches, then fails to say what they are, because you know they aren't making them, I might question the quality. If they were a quality switch, why wouldn't you advertise it as such?
    That said, a switch is a switch, if it looks like you want, and meets the specifications, there's usally not much that goes wrong with them.

    I think that's why they had the carling comment in their FAQ, if you go to carlings website,you can get any symbol you want on them, in almost any configuration. BUt 95% of them you have to order several hundred or more to get.

    funny this came up... If you missed my post on Carling Switches (last post of this thread), I've been pounding this subject for months... I know the Carling catalog backwards and forwards..

    I almost went with the 4x4modz ones, but ended up going with Carling... Carling are super quality, all the boats are running em these days, whereas these appear to be average quality.. Plus they where missing alot of the labeling I was looking for...
