Re: Recommendation for running rigging lines
Halyards should almost universally be high tech lines, to limit stretch. Sheets can depend on whether you're cruising or racing, with wide varieties of cost and performance.
I had basic New England Ropes Sta-Set for sheets and wanted something a bit better, but not racing crazy. I read good reviews in Practical Sailor for Samson XLS.
What a mistake!!! I hate the stuff and would go back to Sta-Set in a second. I'm virtually abusing the new stuff to try to wear it out.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
