Our Lightning Mainsheets are made in a variety of line options to suit your performance, cost and personal preferences. All options have both ends whipped for durability, with the core secured to the cover to prevent no-load movement.
The line used for this mainsheet configuration is a high performance, Marlow Excel Fusion line. This line is soft to the touch, but firm enough in construction to hold well in cleats. The cover texture makes it easy to hold on to under load. Both the core and cover materials offer zero water absorption so it always stays light. With its small diameter, 100% Dyneema SK75 core, stripping the jacket aggressively reduces line diameter and weight. Unlike other lines with 100% polypropylene covers, Excel Fusion has a blend of Dyneema and polypropylene to better deal with abrasion and heat (melting) under high loads.
