LIROS Braid on Braid has been the most popular choice for control lines on cruising yachts for decades and still is.... LIROS Braid on Braid can be used for sheets, halyards and control lines e.g. guys, reefing lines, tack lines, vangs/kickers, down/outhauls, furling lines, runner tails, preventers.

LIROS recommend the optimum line diameter for all your running rigging applications by maximum sail area.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team suggest that there are additional criteria that you may wish to factor in:

  • Consider increasing the diameter to make handling more comfortable
  • Check the capacity of all associated fittings e.g. sheaves, blocks, clutches and winches
  • Assess how hard you intend to work the rigging
  • Prepare for the rigours of extended cruising

Your halyard needs to be strong enough, but it also needs to run smoothly and freely through your rigging system to avoid disproportionate effort, needless delay and excessive wear and tear.
