Rope - Double Braid Black 16mm x 1metre
100% Polyester Core 100% Polyester Cover.
Rope Break Strength 5751kgs*
Made of 100% Polyester these lines are designed with optimum strength and density in mind, by correctly balancing the pitch and fibre content of core and cover. When placed under load, this balance ensures that the maximum strength is obtained with both core and cover combining to take the strain evenly. With the correct balances this eliminates the "choking" of the core or bunching of the cover, giving longer life and consistent performance.

Polyester is the most common fibre found in standard ropes. It has very good UV properties and flex resistance. It has quite high stretch properties which mean that it is used in mainly low tech ropes in the core. It is very commonly used in the over braided covers.
Advantages: Inexpensive, Robust/Good Flex and Fatigue Resistance
Disadvantages: High stretch, Relatively low melting point.
