The OP was being a little short and said he didn't care about cost he just wanted the best. So I specced out what would currently be the absolute top of the line jib
sheets. I would expect to see this or something similar on very few boats, basically the TP-52, AC boats, Maxi
Multihulls, etc. Even on top end budget
insensitive programs the set up I suggested would be over kill.
More realistically amsteel buried inside a polyester cover will work for about 95% of boats. If done correctly they price
out in the same range as sta-set for halyards, and a little more for sheets.
