Combining high strength, low stretch and light weight, Dinghy Control line is ideal for uses such as main and jib halyards and downhaul/outhaul control lines. The braided polyester cover gives comfortable handling and the braided Dyneema SK-75 core provides the strength. Each individual fiber in the core is impregnated with Robline's unique S.Y.I.S. treatment to provide improved core-to-cover grip. In addition, the cover can be stripped as needed to save weight and decrease the diameter.

Comments about Dinghy Control Line:
Bought this as a spinnaker halyard for my Lightning, and sadly it has not worked out. The line tangles on itself no matter what we do, and has lost us a few positions due to late take downs. I will be swapping it with another halyard next weekend. We tried it for 3 weeks and it is just not going to work, but maybe I can use it elsewhere.
