The ultra lightweight alternative to a block, the Shock (SHeaveless blOCK) is compact and versatile. Designed to be used with small diameter line, it can be easily attached using a Dyneema Loop or simply by lashing it to the deck. Originally designed for kiteboarding control lines, the shock can be used virtually anywhere on a dinghy you would use a traditional block. Made of anodized alumnium. Available in red, blue, gray or green.
Made of Low Friction Aluminum. Ability to withstand a high strength while still being incredibly lightweight. Highly reliable and last longer than a bearing unit. These rings come in 5 sizes with 7, 10, 14, 20 and 28 mm holes for any requirement. Also available with a Dyneema loop for a fast and easy connection. Can be used in replacement of a low friction block and ball bearing.
Common applications include: jib leads, backstays, lazy jacks, furling line leads, fairleads.
Available in 10mm, 15mm and 20mm sizes. These machined aluminum rings are hardcoat anodized with soft radius turns for low friction and durability. Perfect for countless applications on both racing and cruising boats from backstay adjusters, vangs, in-haulers etc.
Hall Spars & Rigging has developed a series of ferrules to be used for cascading purchase systems, floating leads, fairleads or any other use you can find for an anodized piece of aluminum. Ferrules are not new technology, especially in the higher end racing scene. Despite how simple they are to make no one seemed to know where to find them in the United States. As they listened to their customers and potential future customers they went about testing, designing and producing them. Do whatever you like with Hall's ferrules. Better yet, show them some way of using them that they had not thought of yet!
With more and more sailboat designs using inhaulers for proper headsail trim, a better design was necessary to combat rings that deformed under higher loads. Enter the Double Bobbin inhauler; made with 6061 black anodized aluminum, these inhaulers are perfect for boats up to 45 feet long, having been tested on Farr 40's and NYYC 42's with great results.
The Double Bobbin is also kinder to line, creating a smoother surface that does not point load the line. With proper setup, a 4:1 advantage is attainable for ease of adjustment.
