Re: Need a new jib halyard. What kind?
If you want to do some splicing then look up the double braid to amsteel splice on l-36.com and do it. It is a pretty easy splice and will make you an inexpensive, light, low stretch halyard. You have double braid for the portion that goes through the cleat or clutch, and amsteel for the working portion.
If you want to save time and can't go too crazy on the budget then Samson XLS Extra (not basic XLS) and New England VPC are the low budget low stretch lines.
