        Comments about LS & LST Yacht Braid:

        I bought this rope for my travelers and outhaul car for my 1998 Hunter 410 on the recommendation of the West Marine advisor. It was a perfect solution, the color combinations made it a perfect fit with my existing lines, and the feel and construction is perfect for the use. I would recommend this line for these uses.

          I use this rope to make bits for horses, it works great. The rope stays soft and conforms to the horses' mouths, it's great stuff.
