Our Farr 30 Backstay is made out of Samson Amsteel Blue and has a sailmaker thimble spliced into eyes on both ends. The masthead thimble is smaller than the deck end for a better fit and less weight.
Amsteel Blue is 100% Dyneema, making it low creep and good for high static-load jobs. The fiber is UV-stable and abrasion resistant. It does not absorb water, so it remains lightweight.
