Very timely thread for me. A friend bought a whole spool of Warpspeed and is cutting lengths of it for several of us who want some new halyards. My main halyard is Sta-Set X, which is OK but still has more stretch than I want. The Warpspeed will improve that a lot. I already have the Wichard shackle and want to splice it on as soon as my friend cuts the line. I did buy a piece of Warpspeed at Fawcett's in Annapolis for cheap (end of a spool) and will practice on that first. Been a long time since I spliced anything but would like to tackle this one. Thanks for all the pointers.
