AU$80.00

* Required Fields

AU$80.00

Purchase custom made running backstay systems online here. The running backstay line should have the same characteristics as your standing rigging. It should be strong, reliable and very low stretch. Some racing yachts favor lightweight options because they lower the center of gravity, and some luxury cruiser favor lightweight fibers because they are much easier to handle. Our in house riggers will splice your running backstay with the hardware of your choice, using the rope of your choice. Our Spectra , Dyneema SK-78 , Vectran and Double Braid Polyester Rope are all manufactured in Australia, and all splicing is done by MarinSpike Marine’s expert riggers. Please allow 1 - 2 weeks for delivery, priority orders are available by request.


We can ship anywhere in Australia including:
Melbourne – Sydney – Brisbane – Perth – Adelaide – Hobart
