Our Thistle Main Halyard is lightweight, hard wearing and extremely low stretch. It is made with Dinghy Control line spliced to a Race Lite Shackle. With the cover pulled back, the core is run through the centerline hole on the top of the shackle and then around the body and back out the center hole into a brummel splice. The cover is then slid up flush with the shackle and seized in place for very clean termination. The bitter end is whipped.
