J/24 Vang: 4:1 Purchase, Maxibraid Plus
The 8:1 vang on a J24 consists of two lines; a Cascade line and a Purchase line.
This 4:1 Purchase line is 5/16 in diameter with an eye splice on one end (for attachment to the becket on the lower fiddle block) and is whipped on the tail end for added durability.
The line used for this Vang Purchase is a high performance, Yale Maxibraid Plus. It features a UHMWPE Spectra core that has been proven to offer high working loads, low stretch, high abrasion resistance, zero water absorption and UV stability. APS is the only distributor for this solid, color-coded line, and we recommend it all of the time. Its solid color cover will be easily identified in high-pressure situations and the TST (Thin Sleeve Technology) construction is durable and runs smoothly through blocks.
