J80 Mainsheet: Excel Fusion, 3/8"
Our J80 Mainsheets assume that you are using a 2' pennant between the boom bail and the top mainsheet block. The mainsheet is eye spliced on one end in order to attach it easily to the fiddle that creates the top block of the mainsheet cascade. The bitter end is whipped for added durability and the core is secured to the cover to prevent no-load movement.
The line used for this mainsheet configuration is a 3/8" Marlow Excel Fusion. It is soft to the touch, easy on your hands Dyneema blended double braided line. Its lightweight cover does not absorb water and is easy to taper. Excel Fusion has a blend of Dyneema and Polypropylene to resist abrasion and heat (melting) under high loads.
