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 mid-range performance, Samson Ultra-Lite line. This line is extremely low stretch, lightweight and strong. It floats and absorbs no water. The Polypropylene Cover with a Spectra and Polypropylene blended core offers a 26% weight savings over 100% polyester lines. The new 24-carrier jacket has been engineered with a coating for added wear life. Expect a slightly shorter cover life than a 100% polyester line, but it's not a bad trade-off given the weight savings.
