Mainsheet Salsa

Just picked up a 92' remnant of 3/8" (10mm) Salsa for a really good price. Am planning on using it to replace my mainsheet. Any feedback on this stuff from someone with experience with it? It seems to be nice and pliable and has enough stretch to absorb shock loads nicely but it does seem more slippery than the traditional double braid I have now and is a size smaller.
