Main sheet length

Anyone know the length of the mainsheet, I have the original on the boat but feel it may be improved with a smaller sized sheet(dia)

Is it too thick to grip easily or does it bind in the blocks?  Thinner isn't always better for mainsheets.  You also have to be careful not to choose a line that hockles easily since you will want it to release and run when you want to depower quickly.

It seems like it does not release quick enough,sometimes u have to drop everything quick!I have some bigger blocks off my beachcat I may try using those for the lower blocks on the rave.
