AFAIK dyneema is no longer legal for lifeline use. I used bare stainless.

I like my Dyneema lifelines for all the same reasons as Jerry, plus it’s easy to splice yourself thus making it cheaper still to install.
I read that chafe is an issue but it’s easy to check any chafe points and I’ve never found a problem. I don’t have any 250 lb crew on the rail, mostly, so there is that.

I would replace with Dyneema, super-strong , greater strength for its diameter than wire, easy to splice, lightweight, feels good to the touch (doesn't cut into your back), easy to inspect, needs fewer fittings than wire, low-stretch, doesn't chafe sheets and sails, costs less and looks better.
