D2 Club...

Marlow D2 Club is designed as an affordable upgrade to Performance Cruising Control Lines making it possible to replace 100% existing polyester lines without going to the expense of Dyneema SK78 in the core.

D2 Club Cruising Dyneema utilises a full, braided Dyneema SK38 core which is lighter and lower stretch than polyester.

Marlow estimate that the stretch characteristics will be approximately 2.5-3% compared with 4% for Marlowbraid and <2% for LIROS Dynamic Plus.

Marlow recommend maintaining the same diameter as the existing polyester halyards.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team are happy to splice your existing fittings onto new control lines.

MarlowD2 Club Cruising Dyneema utilises a full, 12 plait Dyneema SK38 core which is lighter and lower stretch than polyester.

Dyneema SK38 is lighter and has less stretch than polyester but does not match the enhanced performance of Dyneema SK78.

Marlow propose using the same diameter as existing lines, saving the need to change sheaves, blocks or clutches because SK38 is not significantly stronger than polyester
