Cruising Control Lines -  The best control lines for cruising boats are UV stable, have relatively low stretch and hard wearing.     

Racing Control Lines – For control lines on racing keelboats, low stretch lines that are easy to grip and hand adjust are crucial. These lines will and hold and cleat well. Where lines are spliced (not cleated/clutched) uncovered single braids may be used.                         

Dinghy Control Lines – Dinghy control lines are usually smaller diameter, low stretch lines that hold well in cleats.
