blt2ski will become famous soon enough
I have a 4-1 traveler with my 30' Jeanneau, I had a 165# main, and then last summer got a new full roach one that is 195! Then again, I currently have a 4-1 with a 4-1 micro for the sheets, and may make it a 6-1 with 4-1 micro. So it is easier from my wife to haul in, along with really windy days, ie 20'ish knots, gets to be a hand full at even 4-1!
