    Comments about V 100 Vectran Double Braid, Color Coded:

    I replaced the 3/8" headsail furling line with V-100 after the original line failed under way. Wanting a line that would not overfill the furling drum I chose the V-100 8mm with a load test of 8,000#. This line is incredibly strong. It is a bit stiff like any new line. It is already starting to limber up. Cutting and finishing the line is more difficult that standard polyester lines. It doesn't melt for a burn finish but can be taped or tied. Cutting the line requires using shears, a few strands at a time. For high stress loads, tight radii (furling drum), reliability, and durability I highly recommend this line. Warning: wear your gloves- the line will burn if it gets loose.

    I handed a piece of the core and a pair of dikes to friends; no one could even dent the line!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was quick with two day shipping.
