Re: Need Rigging Advice

Thank you all for the great advice! I have been researching the ropes and I think that I have located some decent stuff on rwrope.com. I was looking at their buff polyester 3 strand. Are there any really big reasons that I should not use 3 strand? As I've been looking around, I see that most people use braid and literally no racers use 3 strand. I understand that twist stretches more, but my thought is that I am rather familiar with splicing and the construction of 3 strand, so I would be more confident in my equipment. And that confidence would go a long way in getting me out on the water sooner. Any thoughts on the rope I'm looking at?
Thank you!!!

Seth,
