Asymmetrical Spinnaker Halyard Advice

Hello, I am looking to add a asymmetrical spinnaker halyard for my boat. The boat is a hunter 33 and the asymmetrical spinnaker would be around 750 square feet give or take. I don't want to spend extra money on high tech line, I am just looking at double braid polyester. What double braid would you recommend? I was thinking of Marlow Ropes Blue Ocean double braid because it appears to be a good value. Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. If it doesn't matter, use something like Sta Set X
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"

Re: Asymmetrical Spinnaker Halyard Advice

Like Celeste says. Just about anything strong enough and big enough so it won't cut into your hands while hoisting will work. Avoid polypropylene due to poor UV resistance.
