Not to be confused or compared with similar ropes developed/manufactured from polypropylene which does not have the same qualities as polyester.

Classic 3 Strand Polyester Plus Factors:

  • 100% Spun Polyester
  • Natural look
  • Twisted Lay Construction
  • Very comfortable to handle
  • Remains supple throughout it's working life
  • UV stable
  • Excellent Grip
  • Durable and wear resistant
  • Working Load Stretch >15%

The spun yarn twisted lay manufacturing process results in a rope with considerable construction stretch as well as yarn elongation which compensates for the relatively low break load.

3 Strand Classic Polyester is suitable for relatively low load running rigging and mooring warp applications on cruising yachts and dayboats.
Stepping up in diameter(s) to a beefier, more comfortable size is recommended.
