Looking for some ideas for what size and type of line for a lewmar size 2 traveler.
Specs:
Mid-boom sheeting
Boat Length 40'

My current cordage is not working. It swells up and is binding/slowing my car down. Just the the wrong stuff for the job. Wrong size and all.

I can't find the specs for this traveller on-line.

Looking for something that is slippery, less kink.

Would New england ropes regatta braid 8mm work? or go with 10mm? Single braid?
I know what they recommend; what do y'all think?

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

I use salsa line on my traveler and others that I rig. It works really well and runs very fast.
Saw that yesterday

It was recommended at the sailshop that i avoid single braid dyneema because it is slippery and may slide thru the cam cleats.

I believe i'll get samson MLX; polyester covered dyneema core.
Product

Is the Salsa slippery?

Thanks
