The most expensive I suppose, 3$ per foot of line...Do u need a 3$pf line?? NO!
Its all on how it feels in ure hand/easy to grip etc...

If you do not mind spending money use what I sail with:

Main sheet is 5/16 or 3/8 Conception
Jib sheet is 1/4 or 5/16 Maffoli Swiftcord (not newswift) or Conception

I sail a Tiger and like it to be as comfortable on my crew and myself as I can. Try APS http://www.apsltd.com/Tree/d3000/e846.asp for pricing and colors.

Later,
Dan

You bet!!! It's actually a little closer, for us, than Wichita.

Is Sohn sailing the 16 or 18 that weekend? Maybe Clint and the gang could get a taste of some Northern Hospitality? :wink:

FYI,

I asked and there will be ZERO 18's at the Division 7 championships.

What a shame :(
