  • Core of parallel HT continuous filament Polyester
  • Inner braided sheath of coarse synthetic fibre (8 mm diameter and above) binds the core yarns
  • Outer braided cover of HT Polyester
  • Cup has the lowest stretch possible in a polyester fibre rope due to zero constructional stretch
  • Compact construction, high strength
  • Very high life expectancy
  • No creep
  • Very good characteristics for use with cleats
  • Initial stiffness will soften up in use
  • Deployment as a control line or halyard
