Although the picture shows a headsail my friend is thinking of using them for every place there is a metal shackle. I really like the idea for halyards, one less metal thing banging around. I can see their use at the toe rail too, I already use mountain climbing spectra runners to get the metal off the metal there.
I actually don't imagine using them for the headsail, especially not as shown in the picture, larkshead works great there.
spectra is really starting to replace a lot of stainless steel on the boat, and I really like that trend. Check out a lot of new tackle from ronstan, etc, they are starting to use spectra loops for everything. The cat across from my slip is using spectra standing rigging and I've seen people converting to spectra lifelines a lot.
