Even this is an old question I think it is relevant to add (for new customers) that I have not been able to make an eye-splice in a 14 mm #55793# . The cover is very tight braided. I also removed the inner cover, but that didn't have any effect in penetrating the outer cover pulling in the splice. However, it seems like a very strong and high quality piece of rope and I look forward to use it as a sheet for my Genoa. All the best Kristoffer

No direct experience with smaller diameters which you will most likely use in your case, but hopefully the following helps you to make your decision: I have 10 mm Race XP and 10 mm Gemini X Sport side by side in my boat: Race XP used for single line reefs of the mainsail and Gemini X sport on the rodkicker tackle line. Obvious difference is the bigger stretch of Gemini X, but in my opinion the the Race XP is quite a bit more comfortable in hands. It is fairly stiff line (at least with 10mm), but the cover has a pleasant feel, friction and texture compared to Gemini X sport which I find more slippery and kind of "plastic".

Thank you so much for your answer. Looking at pictures i said the race xp Will have that look more plastic than the gemini. I am happy to find someone who have that two ropes and tive your opinion. I go for the 8mm for my sheets, Only afraid of Being too stiff. Thank you so much again.
