It's time for me to buy some replacement genoa sheets.
The existing are 14mm diameter.
So opinions please on which rope is going to be most suited and comfortable on the hands? (Cheap source also appreciated.)
I realise this information is completely useless at the moment but I always seem to get a bargain at the boat show. Stands like Marlow have rope lengths and a couple of years ago I replaced all the running rigging and spinny and genoa sheets using these. You almost always end up with a bit too much but that alsways comes in handy anyway!
In answering the question I think 12 - 14mm is fairly comfortable - does they go through clutches/fairleads or are there other restrictions?
I like the white ones with the coloured bit in
I once had some plain blue ones which went stiff with age and burned your hands if you let them run
Not very technical answer but I think pre-stretched or something comes into it somewhere. Its the soft floppy ones anyway!
