I use Trophy Braid for the mainsheet in my 16' Rebel. Very comfortable. When I got a Cal 25 this summer the mainsheet was old stiff double braid. I had enough Trophy stashed away to replace the ugly stuff. Easy to grip. I have the dark blue and it does fade from sun but that doesn't seem to affect anything. Splices like any other double braid. May not last as long as smoother double braid but I have had no issues with hockling or wearing yet.. I used some white 1/4" for jib sheets on the Rebel and my only complaint is the white gets dirty easily.
