Strongest rope available, over twice as strong as manila. Plied yarn construction. Highest grade of Nylon yarns used in the cordage industry. Regular lay (medium) construction means ease in splicing nylon rope. Heat set yarns minimize shrink and helps nylon rope maintain its lay. High elasticity for energy absorption, but caution must be exercised due to high recoil and breakpoint of nylon rope. Flexible, high abrasion resistance, can be stored wet. Is not affected by mildew, oil, grease, gasoline, marine growth or most chemicals.
