when soft is good

Big Pimpin’

Basically, just a fiber strop with an eye at one end and a Diamond knot at the other, soft shackles have incredible characteristics that defy their simple design. Soft shackles are stronger, safer, and last as long as their stainless-steel counterparts at a fraction of the weight.

They can replace stainless steel shackles to connect virtually everything that needs joining – halyards to sails, sheets to sails, sails to a stay, snubber lines to anchor chains, etc.
