FSE's tapered lines feature outstanding properties such as excellent abrasion resistance, extra low stretch, and the use of top-quality polyester from selected suppliers.
A specialized line, the Opti Main Sheet is double tapered — thinner at the ends, thicker in the center where it provides for a better hand grip.
The smaller line diameter at the ends reduces friction in blocks and sheaves, for lower physical effort on your part.
It is constructed of a mix of Dyneema® with a PA/PES (polyamide/polyester) yarn for high loads, low elongation and excellent grip.
Note that this sheet is not symmetric, one taper is longer than the other - see spec table - the long taper runs through the blocks on the boom, the shorter taper runs through the cockpit sole blocks.
Use tapered sheets and halyards for —
• Reduced weight
• Strength where needed
• Better handling
