Our J80 Mainsheets assume that you are using a 2' pennant between the boom bail and the top mainsheet block. The mainsheet is eye spliced on one end in order to attach it easily to the fiddle that creates the top block of the mainsheet cascade. The bitter end is whipped for added durability and the core is secured to the cover to prevent no-load movement.
The line used for this mainsheet configuration is a mid-range performance, Samson MLX line. This line offers the combination of unique Innegra S high modulus polypropylene fiber with a Dyneema SK-75 core to create a lightweight, low stretch line with a cover that feels great on the hands. Its Samthane coated core allows us to strip the cover back for extra weight savings.
