Tylaska 5/8" FR4 Low Friction Ring
Low Friction Rings are ideal for applications such as barber haulers, spinnaker twings or other uses that have small turning angles and little line movement. They also work great for backstay adjusters when used in a high purchase cascade configuration. Ferrules start having frictional heating and wear problems when there is significant line movement so conventional pulleys are still better for applications such as mainsheet and halyard blocks.
Tylaska’s Low Friction Rings span an extreme range of working loads and line sizes that no other single manufacturer provides. Traditional pulleys are still better for applications such as mainsheet and halyard blocks.
