NEW ENGLAND ROPES Regatta Polyester Single Braid, Price Per Foot

A very supple, soft line that has good abrasion resistance. Knobby surface is easy to grip, even when wet. Medium-stretch, hocklefree, and free-running. Ideal for sheets and tackle systems on all boats, due to its easy-handling, non-kinking characteristics. Because it is “easy on the hands” and “takes a good grip on the winch,” this is the soft-spun line that Practical Sailor prefers.

  • Stretch: 3.0% at 15%

Nice, but I wish it were less supple

      Comments about Regatta Polyester Single Braid, Price Per Foot:

      I like the fact that it is nubby and easy to grip. However it lacks rigidity for use as a mainsheet. I find myself feeding it to the blocks when letting the sheet out, down wind. In comparison to the 3 other lines I used this season, it is heavy and clingy when wet, seems to get wrapped in my feet and hiking strap. It also has a slight tendency to twist in the blocks but not to the extent of knotting, yet. I really do like this line more than the slick stay-set but I wish it were a bit more stiff.

          many many yrs ago I was a rigger owned my own business, designed a bosun chair block and tackle system using Regatta Braid rope, its what made a great system perfect, the line never kinked, easy to use, could go up and down a mast 5 times with out tiring, long time gone but still remember my system even gave design to USN when they asked for it.

                      I purchased this for a mainsheet on a 12' dinghy. It has worked great for this use. It doesn't kink and feels pretty nice in my hands.

                              I purchased about 70' to replace Genoa sheets on my 10-year old sailboat. Rather than using two lengths as the original owner had done, I passed a loop at the middle of the line through the cringle in the clew of the Geneo, and then threaded the ends through the loop and led them to the cockpit. Presto! No more hang-ups on stays and shrouds during tacks on low-wind days! The product looks beautiful, and the lines are a pleasure to handle. ' couldn't be more pleased.

                                Was using Sta-Set but it would kink occasionally and was tough on the hands.

                                The single braid is free flowing and soft. Makes trimming easy.
