Most have adjustments for things like oversized headsails, spin poles and such, but that typically applies to keel boats.I still get called a cheat for using a rooster 8.1 rig in light airs.
Every line on a Laser has to be of uniform thickness... except at a splice. The length of a legal splice isn’t given, but it obviously shouldn’t include any ”extra” tapering.
