Hi, just ordered a new iwis 83 link chain as I think mine is past its best & just wondered if any one has used either one of the green lth type or the black jockeys boxenstop pull down tensioners with a 19x47 sprocket combo to successfully take up the slack, I know the gt tensioner will do the job but l would prefer to use either one of these, thanks for any info ;)

I used a GT pull down tensioner on my 18-46 set up on my stage 4 175, I must have done less that 1500 miles when I stripped it only to find despite the chain being the correct tension there was quite a bit of wear on the plastic part which I could easily squeeze in with my fingers making it feel like it was hollow?? I wouldent use another but those AF ones look pretty good to me.
