Re: Rope Clutches, go small or big???
Lewmars have been reviewed and suggested by everyone I know. Lots of reviews and comparisons say Lewmars dont jam as frequently, have a unique mechanism that will not chafe or deteriorate the line as quickly and are easier to open under high load. Saw some reviews where racers were ditching their Spinlocks and being much happier with the Lewmars. The D2 line is less expensive and has a higher holding capability. The downside of the Lewmars is because of the new mechanism it is a much more narrow range of rope size. I'm good with that. The boat has had 3/8" Sta-Set X for years. If I need an upgrade, 3/8" VPC will be what I use for the halyards.
