New Halyard

Hello Friends,
I am installing a spin halyard on my Santana 23 and does anyone out there have experience with a Samson product called Tenex? I found a piece of the correct length at a local Marine supply for a great price....what do you guys think ?

No experience with that specific line but I have used single braid. I think it would probably be great as an economy line on a small boat. It looks pretty stretchy, but that's not a bad thing on a spinnaker halyard - it can give a little when you get hit by a gust or when the chute fills abruptly - it will absorb some of the shock.

I am all about saving money but before i'd use this as a halyard I'd go to sampson site & find out.You can always use more line on a boat,But; I don't want to be wasting sailing time reworking the boat!...Dale

Should work fine. The braid will bend easily so as to pass over your sheaves without having to change them. If they designed the line to be used in purse seine trawling, it should be strong enough. The abrasion resistance will be good for chafe at the masthead with the chute drawing. May last you ten years, if not more.
