The 8:1 vang on a J24 consists of two lines - a Cascade line and a Purchase line.
This 4:1 Purchase line is 5/16" in diameter with an eye splice on one end (for attachment to the becket on the lower fiddle block) and is whipped on the tail end for added durability.
The line used for this Vang Purchase is a high performance, Maffioli SuperSwift line. The Blend of a Cordura and Dyneema cover combined with a pure Dyneema core results in a line that is lightweight, strong, and has low stretch properties, which makes it a great choice for high load applications. Offers zero water absorption and will loosen up after multiple uses for a continuously improved feel.
