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, Yale Ph.D. line. Each of the 24 strands in Ph.D. (it's a paired 12-strand) has a Spectra 1000 core with polyester fibers wrapped around it. The polyester is also treated with Yale's i-Grip to give it tenacious grip. Comfortable, almost fuzzy hand feel makes it easier to grip. On winches it grips the surface securely so fewer wraps are needed with less slipping. Knots and hitches hold tightly even in high load applications. Ph. D. offers the softness and flexibility found in other Dyneema blended single braids combined with less elongation and improved durability. Extremely fast running through multiple purchase systems.
