"Spunline" braided polyester rope is a hybrid braid-on-braid rope with a fine "checker-board" appearance. The rope's cover is a combination of spun and smooth polyester yarns producing a strong, abrasive-resistant rope with a soft feel. It is ideal as a sheet or halyard rope where there is heavy wear, but where the rope is also often handled and good grip is needed.
The smooth polyester also enhances the UV characteristics of the rope.
The braided cover of 32 braids encases a polyester core of 16 braids. This construction makes the rope extremely strong, flexible and easy to handle. Furthermore it will bend effortlessly through blocks and is easy to splice.
