i know this is an older thread, but does anyone have some 2010/2011 insight as to utilizing the dynex and a "normal" 3/8 rope-to-rope splice instead of a wire-to-rope splice? My situation is that we have a worn out main and genoa halyard that are on a C&C 32 where the sheaves were designed for wire-to-rope.

It's clear that the wire track has not been used in ages (it's all oxidized).

The 3/8 halyard that's currently in use sticks out about 1/2 way in the track (is that normal?). It was the appearance of the rope in the outer track that got me thinking about going back to wire-to-rope; now reading this thread has got me all confused. Help!
