Look up the strength of that small wire, and compare it to the same size of Dynex. You may be surprised. Unless your sheaves are messed up, I suspect you can use wire sheaves for SK-75

/ Ropes

USe the Dynex 75 as the rope you would need for halyards. This is the SK-75 that goes under the Dynex, Spectra, Amsteel.....it is all the same stuff.

The Dynex Dux however is very different, and I have rigged my entire boat in Dynex Dux. It is much stronger and has very low creep or stretch. No more wire.....
