Halyards - For cruising boats with laminate sails we recommend a blended or 100% Dyneema halyard line. For typical cruising boats using Dacron sails we recommend a polyester double braid line.

Jib/Genoa Sheet - Polyester double braids are the standard choice here, but blended or polyester single braids offer a line that is easier to hold and adjust.

Spinnaker Sheet - We recommend polyester double braids as the standard, but a Dyneema blended cored double braid line will offer lower stretch for better spinnaker pole control and lighter weight.

Control Lines - Double braid polyester lines work for most all cruising control line needs, unless you require lower stretch  for a critical control found in a Dyneema blended or 100% core double braid for more critical controls.
