Good points, Sailingdog, hadn't considered the non braided cores.

In our case we used the thinner, stronger line and covered it with stripped out cover to improve the "hand" and to give the stoppers/cleats something to grab.

Can also visualize the core-less cover rolling up flat on the furling drum - compact and perhaps less potential for overrides?!?
