Hi!

I am wondering who sells the line for the gray and orange main sheets that come standard on the new boats. Thanks in advance!

JP

You mean these? Just got a new boat this weekend, this is what it came with. You will be best to get from your hobie dealer, as these lines come from overseas. Hard to find in the US.

Congratulations on your new boat! That's awesome.

Also, thanks for the info, I'm going to see if maybe I can order through our local dealer, or west marine.

I just did my 3rd Sail using my Salsa mainsheet line......... Great line and very soft. Also replaced Jibsheet line with some VPC 7mm. Not as soft but better than the stuff that came on my boat.

I remember reading somewhere that the Hobie lines are in fact very good.

I just put Robline Racing Sheet Pro on my boat. I wanted Salsa but I thought the colors were ugly. So far I really like my new mainsheet.

Hobie uses Liros....unavailable in the USA. why is that? why doesnt Hobie carry this line in the parts and accessories catalog?

brilliant.

like another poster said, just use something else - Robline is good and similar.

curious as to why Hobie uses a euro line anyway, there are so many good lines out there, many brands. cost?

where are the 16s assembled/boxed/shipped from? oceanside? where ever that is Hobie must have alot of Liros lines, and most likely spools of the Liros line they use to thread the tramp. why is this not avail to the public?
