Singlebraids - Used primarily as dinghy main and jib sheets.

Polypropylene covered with uncoated Dyneema cores - While the cover material is the least durable, it is light weight and floats.  The dyneema core provide low stretch performance.  These lines are best suited for spinnaker sheets on dinghies and small keelboats, as they stay light and don’t colapse the spinnaker in light wind sailing.   Strippeed the cover can be done with some of these lines to further reduce weight.
