Lightning Single Tapered Mainsheets are constructed of a 5/16 in Dyneema line with a 5/32 in Amsteel tail that is tapered and buried at one end for easy handling. Both ends are whipped for added durability.
The line used for this mainsheet configuration is a high performance, New England Flight Line. This super lightweight, high strength, and low stretch line has a super strong core of 100% Dyneema SK-75 surrounded by a braided jacket of Polyolefin (MFP). The cover is strippable to expose the color-coded core beneath and makes tapering and splicing effortless. Flight Line floats indefinitely in both salt and fresh water.
The tail end is made of Samson Amsteel Blue. It is a 100% Dyneema single braid that is UV stable, and abrasion resistant, which means its very durable and works great for high static-loads.
