The Melges 24 Spinnaker Halyards come in various line options and are available either tapered or non-tapered.
This tapered halyard option has a reeving splice at the tail end and is whipped at the working end for added durability.
The line used for this configuration is a high performance, Yale Maxibraid Plus. It features a UHMWPE Spectra core that has been proven to offer high working loads, low stretch, high abrasion resistance, zero water absorption and UV stability. APS is the only distributor for this solid, color-coded line, and we recommend it all of the time. Its solid color cover will be easily identified in high-pressure situations and the TST (Thin Sleeve Technology) construction is durable and runs smoothly through blocks.
