lol, ain't that the truth.
Hopefully they'll get some better coatings to protect from UV damage, as that seems to be the biggest killer of the syn. lines. I'm a big fan of the syn. rigging, I don't like paying $160 for ONE SS shroud and waiting a week to get it. That being said, I plan to keep a SS forestay, and SS uppers. Don't want anyone on the boat getting 'careless' with a knife.
