Cruising Control Lines

Cruising Control Line Selection Guidelines:

LIROS Braid on Braid EVO is the most popular 100% polyester answer for most running rigging tasks and is therefore offered as a top quality, entry level, all round, all purpose solution for cruising yachts.

An increase in the budget will deliver improved wear and heat resistance by upgrading to e.g. LIROS Herkules.

A further increase in budget will deliver lower stretch by introducing Dyneema SK78 into the core e.g LIROS Dynamic Plus article 02004
