Nice line, but wrong color

Comments about LS & LST Yacht Braid:

This line is great for small control lines. I will use this for the lazyjacks on our 27' sloop. I wanted the white line since it would be up against the sails, but WM sent the multi-fleck color, which actually was supposed to cost more, an additional seven cents per foot! So, it is not as though they tried to cheat me, it is just that test lines will stand out quite a bit against my all white mainsail.

      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.
