I would not consider 1/2" line. It is too big for spin gear. It is too heavy to allow the spin to fly in light breeze.  Remember when racing you rarely spend extended periods reaching with the pole on the head stay.  I have raced my boat for 15yrs and have only spent 4-6 hrs tight reaching.

I have 3/8 sta-set double braid and they are to big for most of the racing I do. I will change to 5/16 when my budget allows.  BTW 2x the length of the boat is a good length. 

All the line lengths are in the handbook for reference. Sheets, halyards, dock lines.....
