LIROS Break Load
LIROS Stretch XTR reviewed by Dan Holman – Ex Olympic Laser Squad and Current International 14 Sailor
Having used Liros Stretch XTR for around a year now I can say that I am enormously impressed. It is used principally on takeup systems for control lines and trapeze lines on my i14 racing dinghy, often hidden away in places that make inspection / replacememt tricky. Generally, the duty is hard as these are congested areas with plenty of movement, plenty of friction and plenty of chafing against blocks, rope etc. The Stretch XTR has excelled itself in the applications that I have used it in, looking box fresh after a year, where I would have had to replace conventional shock cord a couple of times, and run the risk of failures whilst racing. The added bonus being that you can bank on a substantial breaking load from it should something else fail and the elastic become the last thing keeping something connected so there is a safety/reliability benefit as well. I would definately re rope the boat with this product as the only elastic.
