This is a high performance mainsheet line for the Thistle sailboat which features a taper and bury on one end to reduce bulk in your sheeting system. This is an upgraded mainsheet compared to our standard Thistle mainsheet options. Developed in coordination with Thistle class experts, this mainsheet is made from Marlow D2 Racing, a pre-stretched, bio-based double braid line that is a great high-strength and lightweight all-around performer. Features D12 78 core with 24-plait polyester jacket that runs smoothly and grips well gibing superior performance in clutches, jammers and winches and providing excellent abrasion resistance and greater longevity. We taper/bury down to the Dyneema core (removing the cover) on the boom end of the sheet. This is our top end mainsheet option.
