Cableless thimbles are strapping thimbles for new generations of headsails (gennaker, code 0, staysail, …) without a rope or anti-torsion cable.
THE INSPIRATION FOR A CABLELESS THIMBLE IN KARVER'S OWN WORDS
We have sought to make a thimble that is the most compact, the lightest and above all the most versatile for the greatest number of sailmakers. We took the time to submit our drawing to several sail designers. One of the expectations of our customers was to be able to store these thimbles so that they could be compatible with other brands of furlers. This is indeed the case thanks to a series of adapter rings. We have finally done our best to ensure that this quality machined thimble is the best value for money on the market. We let you be the judge.
Several sail companies install only cableless thimbles for the tack and a standard thimble for the halyard point. Whatever your habits, it is possible to order a set of thimbles (top & bottom) or one of the 2 thimbles.
