Re: Bad Rope (Line/Sheet) Advice?

Your halyards need to be sized for the turning blocks at the top of your mast. Too small and they could run off the block and jam.

In my view you make a mistake any time you allow the sales people at ANY storefront to make decisions (your responsibility) for your purchases. They are sales people...not technical experts nor do you know their operational background. Take their advice but the decisions are yours.

Hope you find the line suits your needs.
