Marlow V2 Racing features a 12 strand vectran core covered in a UV stable, hard wearing polyester jacket (same cover construction as D2 Racing)

Marlow Recommended Applications:

Control lines, Guys, Halyards, Out/Downhauls, Reefing Lines, Runner tails, Vang

Marlow V2 Racing Plus Factors:

  • Easily spliced and tapered
  • Excellent UV resistance
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Good clutch and jammer performance
  • Good heat resistance
  • High strength
  • Very low elongation
  • Zero creep

Vectran is slightly heavier than Dyneema but offers zero creep and minimal elongation meaning no re-tensioning of halyards is ever needed, even on long tacks when sailing offshore.

As with D2 RACING, the cover provides excellent abrasion resistance along with superior performance in clutches and jammers.

Care needs to be taken if stripping the cover because vectran is more vulnerable to UV damage than Dyneema.

Armourcoating is therefore recommended for Vectran stripped cores.

Marlow V2 racing is not offered from stock. Please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery as orders are often cut to length or manufactured to order at Marlow.

Jimmy Green offer a full splicing range for this line. Also available in 50m hanks and 100m reels for increased discounts.
