Reefing lines are lines used to furl and unfurl your sails partially or completely. Most modern cruisers use a headsail roller reefing system these days, and mainsail roller reefing is becoming more popular. Most manufactures recommend a double braid polyester line 8-12mm. However many customers say they have a better user experience using low stretch lines, low stretch lines many also help hold the sails shape. For standard reefing lines double braid polyester will work fine, spectra is better. We can manufacture endless loop lines for your roller reefing system.
