The ones that support both have a concave rolling edge with a groove for wire. Strictly wire sheaes don't
That's the problem with where i'm at, not alot of sailing. There is one store in Cincy that may have some consignment stuff.

My new mast is already set for line instead of wire. It's sheave is bigger than the other mast.

Here's how we tie ours on.. low profile, secure and cheap!!

Low profile main halyard knot
So I would do the same for all my sails i'm assuming? Definitely the route i'm gonna go!

You can tie on your main halyard but being able to change jibs quickly requires a shackle. Snap shackles should be used on spin sheets and halyards. The U shackle should be used for Main and jib halyards.

That particular snap shackle is a swiveling version. Makes spin hoists a lot easier.
