NEW ENGLAND ROPESRegatta Polyester Single Braid

NEW ENGLAND ROPES

Regatta Polyester Single Braid

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.

  • Best Use: Cruising/club racer handheld lines-sheets, control lines, furling lines
  • Construction: 12-strand single braid
  • Core Fiber/Construction: Spun polyester
  • Stretch: 3.0% at 15%
  • Not Recommended Halyards, Spinnaker sheets, guys, light-air sheets, runner tails
  • Color White/ thin red tracer

      Comments about Regatta Polyester Single Braid:

      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.

                          Comments about Regatta Polyester Single Braid:

                          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.

                              I am using this as the main sheet on my MC Scow. I am very happy with it. It runs great and is easy to grip. Stretch is not an issue for my application.
