XD Kicker Systems using advanced High Load Top Blocks

Our Harken based solution uses a 29mm Fly block with Dyneema loop and shackle/key. The 29mm Fly block features a titanium sheave for strength/light weight, and our Dyneema loop has been strength tested at Marlow ropes to greater than 1000Kg. The kicker key is the newer/stronger type and the shackle screw is secured with Locktite – we leave nothing to chance. This is what Team GBR sailor Michael Beckett has to say about it…”The first time I used the Harken fly block, in place of the old typical wire block at the top of the vang, it was a distinct and welcome improvement. Attached to the vang key with a neat soft-attach and shackle it has no issues taking the load of the vang, whilst significantly reducing the friction in the system. The new block doesn’t look that different to the old, it really is just a simple case of making the vang much easier to pull on. I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve their control lines in any way, but particularly to any smaller sailors who feel like they ‘should’ be depowering more but struggle to pull enough vang on. Also, for anyone looking to change from a 15:1 to 12:1 system to help keep control lines tidy with less rope lying around; this block will really help.”
