Whether you call them soft shackles, softies, or loops - it's clear that spliced Dyneema shackles are quickly becoming the norm on high performance race boats from the America's Cup to moths and everything in between. Extremely lightweight and strong, these can replace shackles almost anywhere you need them and happen to be ideal for jib sheets as they won't bang up your mast or get chewed up by inhaulers. Our shackle loops are also a great way to attach blocks like the Harken T2 or Airblocks to a padeye, toerail, or boom when you need a block to be able to rotate and pivot in ways a shackle won't allow. A Velcro securing strap comes with each shackle to prevent the loop from coming undone in no-load flogging situations.
