Going Up The Mast

From what I interstand the choice of line you use with the mast climer is very important.I would think you would want a low strech line with a soft cover. What type of line did you choose to use?

The line is a 7/16 static line,not a halyard. It must be pulled as tight as possible,otherwise it will be difficult to climb. This spring,I intend to intsall a designated line just for climbing,& it can be used as a spare halyard if need be.The nice thing about a designated line is you don''t have to remove any sails to use it. Some systems you must remove the mainsail to use the track. Very hard if you have a full batten main
