Automatic ratchet block.
Now you can enjoy the flexibility of setting up your ratchet
blocks to suit yourself. Ronstan is the only company that offers
a ratchet block with both auto and manual engagement modes*.
In the auto mode of the ratchet mechanism engages when load is applied,
but switches off when it's released. This lets the sheet run
smoothly and freely-great for rapid easing of the sheet and for
gybing asymmetric spinnakers. In manual mode, the ratchet mechanism
can be switched on or off as required. This is the preferred
mainsheet set-up for may top sailors. Try the block in both modes
which you prefer - you really can't go wrong.
* Selected Series 55 models.
Awesome ratchet block holding power. Quite
Ronstan Series 55 Ratchet Orbit Blocks™ have
the highest holding power available. The sophisticated NC-machined
features Generation 2 of our patented sheave cross-hole geometry.
Its holding power is up to 21:1, almost double that of our nearest
competitior. The unique sheave design has 12 gripping faces which
directly resist loaded line movement. Traditional designes have
only 8 faces with an angled resistance to line movement. Our
Generation 2 design has straight resistance faces which both
distribute the load and minimise rope wear. These faces are offset
from the radial line, to draw the rope down into the gripping
area when under load.
