All of our J22 Jib Halyard options feature a Ronstan Snap Shackle spliced to the working end of the halyard for attachment to the jib. The tail end is whipped to secure the core to its cover, which helps prevent no-load movement and adds durability.
The line used for this halyard is a high performance, Samson AS-90. This line is a 12-strand single braid made of Dyneema SK-90 fiber. It maintains the same lightweight, zero water absorption, durable, and easy handling that characterizes a Dyneema line but it has a 12% increase in strength, and greater linear elastic stiffness, which results in less elongation with an increasing load. State of the art in terms of running rigging.
