Re: Samson Trophy Braid for sheets?

Trophy Braid is heavy and absorbs water. I don't like that aspect of it for sheets.

The sheets on the working jib on my old boat are Trophy Braid. The sheets on the genoa are XLS Extra.

I will say that the Trophy Braid does a better job of not coming out of the self tailing part on self tailing winches. It also does feel nicer in the hand.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
