LIROS Braid on Baid has been the most popular choice for halyards 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 Braid on Braid EVO has a 12 plait polyester core which delivers extra performance - more tensile strength and correspondingly less stretch under load

LIROS recommend sail area as a benchmark for determining the optimum line diameter for your running rigging application.

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 and winches
  • Assess how hard you intend to work the rigging
  • Prepare for the rigours of extended cruising
