Compacted Strand stainless steel wire is designed for high performance shrouds, backstays and forestays on sailboats and yachts committed to racing or extended/performance cruising.
The dyformed compact strand structure delivers lower stretch and higher break loads per given diameter than standard 1x19 wire.
The increase in performance comfortably offsets the minimal weight increase.
2.5mm, 3mm and 4mm diameters are available in 1x7 construction ~ 5mm up to and including 12mm diameter is manufactured in 1x19 construction ~ 14mm diameter and larger is manufactured in 1x36
