Q: Aussie halyard or traditional jib halyard?

If you are looking to replace your jib haylard consider spending the extra cash converting to the Aussie jib haylard. With the Aussie system the compression is at the top of the mast versus the traditional system with compression at the bottom of the mast. This puts the bend at the top where you want it. Note this is worthwhile if you have a comp tip, if you are solid aluminum don't bother changing.
