tap is on a distinguished road
Yale PhD is makes great sheets, but it's expensive. The weave starts out very loose but the heavily loaded part of the line between the sail and cars will shrink to about half diameter. The line past the winches doesn't shrink so much. The looseness can a be a problem as it can catch on things like cleats and spin pole lock levers.
