Our Farr 30 Foreguy has the bitter end whipped and the other end has a small eye splice. We make our foreguys so that they can be either used mid fore deck for "end for end" gybing or from the stem head when flying an A-symmetrical spinnaker. Simply detach the deck block from the mid foredeck eye strap and attach it to the stem head fitting. This way you only need one forestay line/blocks.
The line used for this foreguy configuration is a high performance, Yale Maxibraid Plus. It features a UHMWPE Spectra core that has been proven to offer high working loads, low stretch, high abrasion resistance, zero water absorption and UV stability. APS is the only distributor for this solid, color-coded line, and we recommend it all of the time. Its solid color cover will be easily identified in high-pressure situations and the TST (Thin Sleeve Technology) construction is durable and runs smoothly through blocks.
