NEW ENGLAND ROPES
VPC Hybrid Performance Braid

Utilizing Hybrid Performance Technology, VPC™ has a strong, lightweight core of Vectran and polyolefin surrounded by a durable UV-resistant polyester cover. VPC™ was designed specifically with the club racer or cruiser in mind, and it fills the gap between traditional all-polyester rigging and more expensive grand prix racing lines. Recommended by Practical Sailor for its low elongation, durability and ease of handling, November 2010.

  • Best Use: Sheets & halyards on casual racers and offshore cruisers
  • Core Fiber/Construction: Braided Vectran/Polyolefin
  • Cover Fiber/Construction: Braided Polyester
  • Stretch: 1.40% at 20% of breaking strength
