Hi
I should know after all these years but have forgotten.
What is a good halyard rope to buy for the Blaze, by diameter and brand?
Chandlers here in the depths of Cornwall recommend anchor rope or sisal but
dimly recollect from Burghfield days that there is something better out
here...
Thanks

PS Good luck with Ally Pally, all you guys on the stand .

i use a 4mm dyneema cored halyard until last weekend when the outer sheeth failed in hte area of the cleat after about 12 months use. Replaced it with a 5mm one so it does not go so far inot teh jaws and also will cut 50mm of teh end every 2 months to avo1d over stressing one area

It is a good halyard - next to no stretch
