Marlow D2 Competition - now discontinued by Marlow and replaced by D2 Club
Cover: 16plait 100% Polyester
Core: 12 strand braided Dyneema® SK78 with additional inner traction jacket
Performance Cruising, low stretch halyard for competitive cruising and occasional racing.
D2 Competition performance and pricing falls between:
100% premium polyester for Cruising
Polyester jacket/full Dyneema core for Racing
MBL = Marlow minimum break load
N.B. The inner cover plait is not load bearing and a certain amount is removed as part of the core dependent splice resulting in a reduced diameter over a short length. Although it looks thin, the strength of the splice and the rope is not compromised.
The Polyester cover can be permanently removed to produce a cover stripped Dyneema core only loop splice.
Snapshackles can then be retrofitted/changed over, attached using a simple a cow hitch - pass the loop through the eye of the shackle, over the top and back down to the rope end.
