Pull down rope for rudder blade.
This rope has been selected for its stretch properties. Why I can hear you say? If you imagine you have a zero stretch rope - then it would be impossible to tie off tightly or cleat. Since the length of rope is so short it makes making fast even harder - so we have used a stretchy rope to help sweat it tight - I can play a tune on mine when it is fastened off! If I had a non stretch one - it would be almost impossible to make fast with any tension in it.
Please note that rope colour may vary.

- MNMartin N.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars11 seconds agoGreat
Works well with the ClamCleat, tried an extra purchase loop behind the rudder stock, but I don't think there's enough room with this thickness of line!
- RARich A.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars3 months agoNeat and Tidy!
This is a simple and useful addition to the Laser rudder downhaul. My old setup was a faff and not long enough to loop properly with a bowline. The advice on the Rooster website is worth following in terms of how to tie this, as it makes a very simple, easy to operate and secure downhaul. Very useful when you want to get the rudder down quickly on windy days. Only thing I find is the rope is probably overall longer than my needs, but that is easily fixed by cutting with a hot knife. Bright colour looks kind of cool too!
- DEDavid E.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 4 out of 5 stars1 year agoOK after a little mod
OK but end was burred where it had been heat cut and stuck in cleat when removing. OK after trimming with knife
