The EPIC traveler is the LAST traveler that you'll ever need for your Laser. It is made of New England's Wire Rope Replacement, which has both a Dyneema core and cover.
A high tech splice in one end creates a 6-inch loop and a whip on the other for durability. This allows smooth tiller transitions without snagging. It truly is epic. You'll wonder how you ever sailed without it!

If you like your laser traveler; then you can keep your laser traveler. But, if you are looking for an easy, affordable, and totally EPIC laser dinghy traveler upgrade, then look no further.. I present to you, The Laser Epic Traveler by APS.
Made from New England’s Wire Rope Replacement, it is a double-braid Dyneema line. Double braid means a better hold in the cleat with a higher resilience to UV damage, and of course, no stretch.
How does it work?
Our riggers splice a high-tech, 6 inch loop into the end; thus eliminating the potential for the tiller to get hung up on a bulky bowline. Then, we use a 12:1 system with 1,000 lbs of pressure to ensure there will be no “set”, or elongation when the line is loaded up during sailing. An end whip finishes off the inboard end for durability, and you are good to go.
