Great tactile feel, terrible knots

By Talmadge the sailor

Comments about Pre-Stretched 8-Plaited Polyester Dinghy Line:

I used this for the out haul and Cunningham on my laser. It has a great feel in the hand, and when it's wet, it still feels grippy. That said, it is very stiff line, and makes quite large knots that want to untie or come loose. It also isn't the smoothest through blocks. Maybe when it breaks in, it will tie a little better butThere are better lines that sacrifice a little grippy feel for superior knot tying like New England or fse or maffoli.
