Herkules for commercial fishing and shipping

Combining handling attributes of textile rope with a high dead weight, Herkules is especially desired in the commercial fishing sector: for use as bottom-set longlines or trawl warps that effectively dampen shocks thanks to the line’s strong sag. Herkules is also deployed as a mooring line: particularly in instances where flammable cargo could endanger the secure mooring of a vessel
