Our Viper 640 Spinnaker Sheets all come in a 5/16 in diameter for easy handling. The sheet is designed to be continuous with both ends luggage tagged onto a pigtail (1/8 in Amsteel) which is then tied to the clew of the spinnaker; you could also luggage tag the sheet to the spinnaker if you'd prefer to have two ends instead of a continuous sheet.
The line used for this spin 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.
