    I wanted to get some feedback on turning block size. Specifically genoa and spinnaker blocks. Yes, I have read/seen most of the the guides out there, but has anyone increased the size to a 75m block? If so, has it helped or has there been no change. Some of my blocks need to be upgraded, but did not know if it would help keep the 57m size or jump up a size to a larger size.

    I have 57mm Harkins for all spin blocks (switchable ratchets aft and automatic amidships). The Genoa blocks have much higher loads and I mostly use Harkin 75mm ratchets. I do also have a Lopez block set which uses 57mm but they are not as durable.
