Has anyone encountered this and have a remedy: I rigged by brand new 06 Tiger that had never been in the water (I know - it's weird), sailed it & flew the spin for the first time at Spring Fever this year, brand new halyard out of the factory bag and stretched full length to rid the kinks, it still wound so many times unknown to me that it braided double thick, would not douse back through the loops on the spin, we had to leave the course to figure it out missing 3 of 4 races that day, stretched it full out again, said prayers and spilled beer over it, etc. and it still doesn't look happy. It measures about 5 mm or 3/16ths. Any successful remedies before i suck it up and replace it rather than risk a repeat? What would you replace it with?
