BUILT TO ORDER - Expected to Ship in 2-5 Days

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 starts with 8mm New England Ropes Endura Braid, a double braid with Dyneema SK78 core and 24-plait polyester cover. We taper/bury down to the Dyneema core (removing the cover) on the boom end of the sheet. The 24-plait polyester cover offers great abrasion resistance while the SK78 core provides strength and minimal stretch. This is our top end mainsheet option.
