3:1 mainsheet length and diameter suggestions?

Can someone gives the length of their main sheet if they have a 3:1 system and if they prefer it over a two to one?

 

Thx

3:1 MAINSHEET LENGTH AND DIAMETER SUGGESTIONS?

I use the 3:1... 5/16" is the diametere, and I think 65' is the length.  70' will be a little safer. I hate having even a couple of extra feet dangling for no good reason.

Here is the thing, if you have the 3:1 hardware setup, you can chage it to 2:1 in a matter of seconds.

Main length

Sure, just untie at the top of rudder (last connection) and tie a strong figure 8. It won't pull through at the boom. Takes it naturally to a 2:1 immediately.
