Loos gauge, as mentioned does the tension checking easily and quickly. I got mine from Salty John who posts here, quite reasonable price, I thought. Friends could use it too.

Getting tensions right is one thing but not all of it, because you can have the rig all set up with the right loadings but still way off tune as far as balance is concerned. The rake has to be right, some pre-bend aft is good, forward rake is bad and too much aft is bad on most boats. Then again the set up at rest may be well OK on the gauge but still not right when under sail, which is when it really counts.Sermons from my pulpit are with tongue firmly in cheek and without any warranty!
