As sailing has progressed through the years, we are seeing a bigger demand for stronger, lighter and more performance-orientated hardware. So, naturally, hardware development has taken the path of removing the metal attachment points and metal shackles from blocks to reduce the weight and size. But then you are left with the problem of how to attach the block to a fixing point. Rope was the answer!
Allen, the UK manufacturer of performance hardware, has been leading the way in soft attach fittings and now offers a wide range of Tii-on products. The range of products will be on display at the Allen exhibition stand at METS.
