Marlowbraid Control Lines

Marlowbraid is Marlow's longstanding, leading 100% polyester solution for cruising performance control lines

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team are happy to splice your existing shackles onto new halyards.

Marlowbraid is an excellent, relatively low stretch, hard wearing solution for most running rigging applications e.g sheets, halyards, control lines, guys, reef lines, tack lines, vangs, down/outhauls, furling lines, runner tails and preventers.

Marlowbraid Specification:
Cover: Durable 16plait polyester
Core: twisted loose lay 3-strand construction that delivers minimum achievable stretch (approximately 4-5%) without dyneema content

Marlowbraid Facts, Features and Plus Factors:

  • Twisted 3-strand core delivers slightly less stretch than braid on braid construction
  • Tendency to flatten under load e.g. around winches, due to the loose laid core
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Good UV stability
  • Spliceable
  • Very high load capacity for 100% polyester halyard
  • Available in: white with black, blue or yellow coding; full colour Natural (Classic)
