NEW ENGLAND ROPES V-12 Vectran Single Braid

Like wire but better!

One of the lowest stretch, highest strength rigging lines we sell, with virtually no creep and excellent durability. Excellent abrasion resistance. Stays light even when wet because it does not absorb water. Can be downsized. Easy to splice and holds knots. A performance line with ultra low stretch and creep.

  • Best Use: High-load, low-stretch applications. Backstays, checkstays and halyards on racing boats and megayachts where high strength, low stretch, light weight, and zero creep are required
  • Construction: 12-strand single braid
  • Core Fiber/Construction: 100% Vectran
  • Stretch: 0.71% at 20% of breaking strength

About Me Advanced

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Amazing Strength
  • Splices And Holds Knots
  • Takes Sharp Corners Well

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Large Boats
    • Sailing
    • Small Boats

    We used 6mm Vectran to replace a 1/4" Wire Rope centerboard cable that kept breaking on our 34' Morgan sloop. It was a bit scary to think something so thin and light could hold up such a heavy load, but after our first full season in a few years this rope showed no sign of stretch, wear or degradation. It also splices and holds knots well as promised.
