MXL Soft Block
When used in conjunction with heavy loads (mastfoot block, spinnaker tack point), normal friction blocks are heavy and take up space. Following on from our success with the MX halyard shackle, Wichard is proud to present the MXL: a new soft block solution for ropes. Accessible to all, the MXL is strong, reliable, light and fits anywhere.
FRX Wichard thimbles are efficient, light and reliable. Very strong, they can be used for heavy loads and semi-static lines. FRX thimbles are designed to make your lines run smoothly with minimum wear. They are hard anodized (50 microns) for a longer lifespan.
The MX Block is perfect for taking on the heavy loads of flying sail furler terminals and 2:1 purchase mainsail halyards, mastfoot deflection.
