APS Karver Optimist Mainsheet System

Combine Karver KBO blocks with our APS Dyneema Shackle loops for a lightweight, low friction system that you can easily convert for a 4:1 to a 2:1 just by detaching the DSL and letter the lower blow drop to the deck.

The same system can be used to make a 3:1 covert to a 2:1 for stronger sailors – just remove the lower block and tie your mainsheet off to the shackle loop.
For the 4:1 system you will need 3 KBO2 blocks, 1 DSL, and a non-tapered mainsheet like Buzz or Rooster line. (The thick part of the tapered mainsheet is too wide to fit in these ultra slim blocks.)

  1. How do you get the top block off the bridle with one hand? Can it be done easily and quickly?
