Our Snipe Mainsheets are available with a variety of line options to choose from depending on performance, cost and personal preferences. This option has a 1/4 Dyneema line with a 5/32 in Amsteel tail spliced on. Both ends are whipped for added durability.
The line used for this Mainsheet 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.
