Re: Best line for jib sheets

Here are the actual specs for Cajun XLE:
http://www.novabraid.com/rope/xle_performer.html

They are not publishing the stretch properties on the Cajun website because they are truly awful. 5% stretch at 20% of breaking, compared to 3% for other double braids. On your 55' mast (~70' working length) that is about 3.5' of stretch vs 2' of stretch for XLS or 1' for XLS Extra.
