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 blend of high strength, low stretch Dyneema SK75 and light weight Polypropylene to produce a core which elevates the performance beyond the capability of 100% 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 shackles onto new halyards.
Marlow D2 Club Cruising Dyneema Specification:
Cover: 16 plait Polyester
Core: Coated 12 strand Dyneema SK75 blended with lightweight braided polypropylene fibre
Dyneema SK75 is lighter and has far less stretch than polyester but does not quite match the enhanced performance of Dyneema SK78 or SK99.
Armourcoating protects the core and makes it easier to splice.
