This is a high performance main halyard line for the Thistle sailboat. Developed in coordination with Thistle class experts, this tapered version is a performance upgrade of our standard halyard. Featuring a taper/bury on both ends for less weight aloft and a lightweight tail section that can easily be stowed. A 9' section of cover is left in place for cleating once the sail is raised. The 6mm Marlow Excel Racing line has great durability with a low stretch Dyneema SK-78 core. A great choice for the active racer! Includes stopper ball on one end.
