The solution is tapered sheets. Thin line kills your hands and thick line is too heavy to let the chute fly in light air. Line that doesn't absorb water is a nice to have. Eventually, the line will get wet and if it stays wet and heavy, it will also make the sail fly poorly in light air. Some folks even go to the trouble of having multiple sets for different conditions.
