Nova Lite HP line for spinnaker sheet
Posted 29 November 2012 - 10:28 PM
I found this on one of the companies' website that advertised recently on SA. I need to replace my spin sheets (23' Santana 2023R, masthead asymmetric) and I thought maybe 1/4" of this line would work.
It's double-braid with a multi-filament polypropylene cover and spectra+multi-filament polypropylene blended core.

I am surprised nobody has posted anything about your question. Probably the product is quite new on the market. Not sure. I have visited the site and saw the line and detils and looks quite nice and adequate. Have you talked to them? I know them and they are very helpful and reliable. I suggest you give them a call and find out.
The construction and materials sound right. It seems to be similar to our Marlow Excel Fusion 75 which has a smaller DSK-75 core on a polypropylene blended core, making very light, non water absorbent and very good in the hand.
My only observation on this types of lines is to keep an eye on the size: if you do some sort or distance race or triangles where reaching is involved, the 6mm will stretch a bit when working as the guy. If it is all windward / leeward you might get going with the 6mm.
Hope this helps.

I'll use it primarily for an asymmetric and I have a smaller symmetric for DDW in strong winds. I don't think the stretch will be an issue.
