These Snipe Jib Sheets have the middle of the line doubled over a small screw shackle. This attachment is then double seized and hand stitched, and is covered with shrink-wrap for a clean and snag free attachment. All ends are whipped for durability.
The line used for this jib sheet configuration is a high performance, Marlow Excel Fusion line. This line is soft to the touch, but firm enough in construction to hold well in cleats. The cover texture makes it easy to hold on to under load. Both the core and cover materials offer zero water absorption so it always stays light. With its small diameter, 100% Dyneema SK75 core, stripping the jacket aggressively reduces line diameter and weight. Unlike other lines with 100% polypropylene covers, Excel Fusion has a blend of Dyneema and polypropylene to better deal with abrasion and heat (melting) under high loads.
