Designed specifically for the current rule, requiring all boats to use a split tail mainsheet. Our mainsheets are tapered from the 5/16 in sheets down to 5/32 in Amsteel for the tails with a smooth transition for easy trimming. Works with both aft bridle sheeting or mid boom bridle sheeting.
The line used with for this mainsheet is a high performance, Marlow Excel Fusion line. This line is soft to the touch, but firm enough in construction to hold well in cleats. The cover texture makes it easy to hold on to under load. Both the core and cover materials offer zero water absorption so it always stays light. With its small diameter, 100% Dyneema SK75 core, stripping the jacket aggressively reduces line diameter and weight. Unlike other lines with 100% polypropylene covers, Excel Fusion has a blend of Dyneema and polypropylene to better deal with abrasion and heat (melting) under high loads.
