Replacement tack line for the J/80 sailboat from the West Coast Sailing Rig Shop. The tack line is a high load application, so we build ours from 8mm Marlow D2 Race. This is a high-strength, lightweight all-round performance line with Dyneema core and a 24 plait braided polyester cover. Benefits include a very high strength-to-weight ratio, very low stretch, low creep and outstanding durability - ideal for your next tack line!

  • Line: Marlow D2 Race
  • Diameter: 8mm
  • Core: Dyneema
  • Cover: 24 plait Polyester
  • End Whips
