Robline 7818 Optimist Double Tapered Main Sheet 7m Navy-Silver
Tapered at both ends for smooth trimming upwind and working it downwind.
This polyester version is the most popular Opti racing mainsheet in the world. Polyester for high loads, low elongation and excellent grip.
Double tapered, with a 1.5 m length of 6.5 mm diameter line, 2.5 m of thicker 9 mm line for grip, and a 3 m long tail of 6.5 mm diameter rope.
Using a tapered main sheet can give you an edge:
- professional machined tapering with even transitions
- reduced weight
- strength, exactly where it counts
- improved handling
- smaller rope diameter generates less friction in the blocks and therefore minimizes the physical effort required
- less "rope chaos" in the boat
- Blue-Silver color
These benefits might just make the difference to claim victory. There are plenty of reasons why you should never set sail without a "tapered" sheet by Robline.
