Re: Size of main sail sheet


I second that, when I changed my 14mm genoa sheets for 12mm the sheets were less comfortable and maybe even stretched a little under high loads.

Many times, the smaller diameter line is plenty strong, but the larger diameter line feels better in the hand, easier to pull and handle at the expense of increased weight.
