  • Dyneema core is light weight - reduces onboard weight and makes the rope easier to handle
  • Dyneema core is stronger than standard polyester ropes – gives you an increased safety factor
  • Less stretch than polyester ropes - far fewer rig adjustments when sailing
  • Sacrificial internal traction jacket makes splicing much easier
  • Dyneema ropes can be tapered – saves more weight and makes handling even easier
  • A cost effective option to upgrade to Dyneema without worrying about changing deck gear
