Re: Mind Your Hi-Tech Splices!!!

Ever thought about replacing your T-900 with 10MM Yale Crystalyne. 130 ft halyard at $1.95/foot is $253.50 plus splice I'd definitely use thimbles with the vectran core of Crystalyne. Minimal creep compared to T-900 with same breaking strength. Sailed a few Macs on a First 42. They are beasts going uphill in a blow.
