Blocks are rarely noticed—unless they fail or slow you down. Ronstan’s new Orbit blocks are both light and strong, thanks to their polymer-and-fiber construction, and are packed with enough features and options that you’ll notice them. There are currently 18 configurations of Series 55 blocks that are aimed at a variety of applications on boats into the 30-foot range; larger 70mm Orbit blocks are expected soon, with smaller sizes to follow. The open-frame blocks feature a replaceable Dyneema strop connection point and silky-smooth sheaves. From $29.99. Ronstan International, Inc., 401-293-0539, www.ronstan.com
