I used this line for a jib sheet, and also for a righting line for my nacra 5.8 catamaran, as well as for a 4-point harness to hoist the boat.
Great construction, long lasting. The color coding is great for identifying sheet on a crowded trampoline, and with new crews that are unfamiliar.

As another poster has noted this is extrememly difficult to do an eye splice (I have 3/8") due to either the cover not being very distendable or the core being especially thick, rendering it nearly impossible to bury the cover within the cover. The line itself performs fairly well as a mainsheet but is a little stretchy for halyards. After 3 years of seasoning I also would have expected it to develop a little bit of a softer feel that one would like to have in a mainsheet but it still seems stiff.

    Comments about Color-Coded Sta-Set Polyester Yacht Braid, Sold per Foot:

    So the description of the item I purchased is listed as being the "Color-Coded Sta-Set Polyester Yacht Braid", but instead of the sta-set, I got the double braid. I could easily put the eye splices in them. They feel great. In retrospect, I should have not gotten white. The white immediately shows any water marks, or dirt that gets in contact with it. That is too bad. Other than that, it is a great rope that is well made.

      Comments about Color-Coded Sta-Set Polyester Yacht Braid, Sold per Foot:

      New England Ropes make some of the finest quality line on the market. I was extremely disappointed by the poor quality of the terminations of both ends of the line. The 80' line was cut to length by the folks at the West Marine fulfillment location. I could not believe how poorly terminated the line ends were. I re-terminated them myself to make them appear as they should.

      Service and delivery comments:

      You need to train the personnel in the fulfillment location how to properly terminate pieces of line that have been cut to length from a spool of line.

        This 110' length of Sta Set X was used to replace an old Sta Set halyard. I was able to reduce diameter by 1/8" and find that the Sta Set X meets all requirements that we have when club racing

            This line is really nice and slips easily through blocks. I use it as a very long continuous Spinnaker halyard. Still it is easy to hold in your hand, and makes raising and lowering the sail quickly a breeze.

            The nice tight weave makes line easy handling and smooth running in the blocks.
            Tried every trick I've learned in 40 years on the water. Tried tapering the splice, made smaller diameter fids, tried pushing, tired pulling, etc., etc. Unable to make an eye splice! In the final application, we just tied a bowline knot and taped the end to secure.
            Choose the application of use carefully!
