Anyone using Yale Vizzion for halyards? I need to replace my halyards and I have a very good line on some of this stuff.. Good / bad?
Actually this 3/8 Vizzion was a production run of red/white/blue.. Kind of ugly but should work fine.. I've used Sta-Set X and hate how it pills and it does seem to creep more than I'd like when wet.I like the black cover with red, yellow, blue, or green tracers; they look sharp and are easy to identify.
How does Vizzion compare to T900 on paper? T900 is too expensive for me to replace all my halyards but I'm thinking I might use it just for the main halyard since thats were it would make the most difference.
I'll probably go with Sta set-X for the genny and spinniker.
Very true; if you are not running a low-stretch sail; then you probably won't benefit much from a low(er) stretch halyard. I think you want to minimize the stretch of the halyard; but at some point it becomes a question of cost to actual performance gained. I'm using the 1/2" Vizzion and it has been good for ~4 years now with little signs of wear/tear on the cover (but some UV fading of course).People seem to forget the stretch characteristics of the bolt rope or luff tape in the sail has more to do with shape holding than the line.
