Re: New mainsheet - recommendations
I re-rigged with Samson XLS after some consideration, vetting and recommendation from a Practical Sailor comparison study. I hate the stuff.
It's slippery, it deforms and I don't even like the thread colors, which is probably due to my bad attitude on those first two characteristics. Nice hand feel and the study said it wears well. I've only had it one season and I'm abusing the daylights out of it, hoping I will need new sooner.
I will go back to New England Ropes next time. I was sold on the wear, as my last jib sheets wore out in 3 years. They take a lot of abuse around multiple stays. I think I won't get much more out of these anyway.
