NEW ENGLAND ROPES Sta-Set X Parallel Core Braid

Patented all-polyester braid with parallel core construction and a filament/spun cover for improved handling and greater abrasion resistance. One third less stretch than Sta-Set at only a small price premium. In many applications, Sta-Set X can be used in lieu of expensive racing braids, especially when sized conservatively. Soft cover improves grip in the hand and on a winch. Recommended by Practical Sailor, November 2010. Identified by two fine red tracers in the cover forming the characteristic “X”.  Sold per foot.

  • Best Use: Cruising boat halyards, spinnaker sheets, guys
  • Construction: Parallel Core Braid
  • Cover Fiber/Construction: Smooth braided polyester
  • Core Fiber/Construction: Unidirectional Polyester
  • Stretch: 1.95% at 20% of breaking strength
  • Not Recommended: Applications needing high flexibility
  • Color: Red Tracer
