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, Alpha Ropes SSR line. Alpha Ropes SSR single braid line is extremely versatile. This light, strong, abrasion-resistant and durable rope is popular among Olympic sailors and performance cruisers alike. SSR will not absorb water. It's soft feel and no kink properties make SSR an all-around great sheet line. If you loved Maffioli's Swiftcord and are looking for a replacement, SSR is nearly identical.
