just switched out my wire-rope for all rope when I got my standing rigging replace. had the rigger look at the sheeves to make sure they were ok for rope first.

I hate wire-rope halyards cause they tend to develop meat hooks at the nicopress. besides, you can't cut and tie on if your shackle breaks or jams open. I also hate the sound of wire slapping on a mast.
