    Product Description

    Weight at the mast top is one of the biggest drawbacks to Yacht performance. Equiplite patd. swivel quick connectors using DSK 75 loops, to take the load, are designed for halyard use. DSK 75 is the most UV tolerant of the super braids. Being approx. 80% lighter for the same load compared to traditional stainless fittings they are being used on top competitive boats, are quick and easy to use and do not jam of fatigue, even under extreme loads. They employ hi. Load Polymer swivels for easy rotation.
