Dyneema halyards

Have there been any discussions about allowing dyneema line in place of the wire halyards on a Scot?  I assume it would still fit on the spools of the winch box?

Haven’t heard any discussion

I haven’t heard any.  I ask what would the benefit be?  Is Dyneema lower in stretch, than a steel cable?

I would think they would cost more.

Not trying to be negative, but it would be interesting to hear what you think the benefit would be,  The current steel cables are pretty durable, and not very expensive to replace.

I don't even think they make anything that small.
