Marlow M-Rig Max is manufactured using the latest Dyneema DM20 fibre. It is then super pre-stretched using Marlow's Max technology to maximise strength and reduce constructional stretch. The result is a high strength line with near zero creep making it ideal for standing rigging applications. Zylon or PBO have been the only alternative to wire for many years. These fibres are prohibitively expensive and only possible to terminate with specialist equipment. Now, fibre rigging can be easily accessed for all.
Fibre rigging is specified by matching the stretch of the replacement cable to the working stretch of the stainless steel wire. This typically means that fibre rigging is slightly bigger than wire but still saves a lot of weight aloft. By matching the stretch factor, the new rigging will be anywhere between 2 and 5 times stronger than the stainless steel rig it replaces. Never specify a rig by matching breaking strains as this will result in a stretchy rig. Available with a full range of spliced finishes from the Jimmy Green custom system or in longer lengths on a reel.CUSTON BUILD INSTRUCTIONS - FIBRE RIGGING
