Our J80 Mainsheets assume that you are using a 2' pennant between the boom bail and the top mainsheet block. This Mainsheet is eye spliced on both ends in order to attach it easily to the fiddle that creates the top block of the mainsheet cascade.
The line used for this mainsheet configuration is a high performance, Samson AmSteel Blue line. This line is a torque-free 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and is stronger than wire rope constructions; yet it is so light, it floats. It is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch, superior flex fatigue, UV stable, and abrasion resistant.
