This Melges 32 Tack Line incorporates the new class legal Equiplite Shackle and is made with the lightest tack line available.
The Equiplite shackle is spliced to the working end and includes two feet of DCS Dyneema cover to protect against wear at the pole block. The tail is covered in Yale Cover Only, which gives you a better handling diameter of 5/16 in+.
The entire length of the tack line is made of Samson Amsteel Blue. This line is a torque-free 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and is stronger than wire rope constructions; yet it is so light, it floats. It is an excellent wire rope replacement with extremely low stretch, superior flex fatigue, UV stable, and abrasion resistant.
