Re: Running Rigging Vendor_Whos Best?

Ditto all the above, rigging only is extremely helpful and will literally downsell you if it's in your best interest. Defender and Mauri pro sailing are great. I recently had a bad experience with Sound Boatworks, where I ordered a jacket they had on special and promised it would be shipped that day or the next one (I had a turkey day regatta I wanted it for). Almost 3 weeks later they still hadn't even shipped it. Mauri pro and defender ship same or next day, so I was a little spoiled I guess. I cancelled and ordered from Mauri pro who had the same promotion ongoing.

Splicing amsteel is very easy once you do it a couple times (great tutorial onlinea here:
) and requires little more than a marlinspike and some tape. If you are using high tech cored lines with poly covers then you simply splice the core which like I said is very simple. However if it is standard polyester core with polyester cover, then the cover takes the load and the more difficult double splice is necessary.
