Yale Cordage Ph. D. Cruiser is a single braid line that uses a new approach to line manufacturing. Ph. D (Performance handling Delivered) is constructed using spun polyester twisted over individual polyester strands. This combination results in a flexible line with a soft hand feel that grips well, and runs smoothly through blocks.
- Good for jib/genoa sheets and mainsheets on cruising sailboats.
- Has a fuzzy texture that feels comfortable in hand and adds extra grip. Will compress somewhat under load.
Cover Material: No cover
Core Material: Spun polyester twisted over polyester
- Ph.D Cruiser fuzzy texture grips comfortably in your hand, which adds grip and makes sheets easier to hold and adjust. It also grips winches well for better control and release. It is lightweight and runs smoothly through blocks for easy tacks and gybes. Spun exterior fibers hold knots well and does not kink.
End Termination: Melted
- Ends melt easily but end whips can be added for extra durability.
- Can be spliced with a 12-strand splice.

The neat thing about the PHD CRUISER line is that it is super soft! What a dream to handle these sheets on our 35ft cruising sailboat. After 3 seasons, this line is still soft to handle and still looks good. The cover does stretch a bit so don't size down on any lines.
- Super soft feel
- nothing realy
Hi, this is Kyle from APS, and I'm here to share with you some of the characteristics of Ph.D Cruiser by Yale Cordage.
This is a very unique all polyester, single braid line, pleasure to use as sheets and control lines. It's very, very soft. The polyester is fuzzy making it very easy to hold onto, very soft. It really wants to grip whatever it comes in contact with.
You even may realize the advantage of when you put this on a winch drum having to take one less wrap because it just wants to hold onto the drum that effectively.
It is again a single braid. You can do a 12-strand eye splice with this. Because of the long braid angle, you may find that the eye and the splice, the neck of the splice is a little bit longer than your average 12-strand splice.
This is the ¼”. We've got quarter, 5/16”, 7/16” and ½”, so ¼” just super soft, 5/16”, 7/16” and finally the ½”. That's just so nice.
That's Ph.D Cruiser by Yale Cordage. For these and all of your line needs, visit us at apsltd.com.
