SAMSON ROPE Control-DPX 12-Strand Single Braid

Control-DPX™ combines Dyneema® fiber and Samson's patented DPX™ technology into a strong, lightweight line that is winch and cleat friendly, while being incredibly easy on the hands. DPX™ adds the grip and “soft-hand” feel of spun polyester to the lightweight strength of Dyneema® fiber. The result is an easily spliced, 12-strand single braid that performs well where winches are required without an added cover, while retaining the great “feel” you want in a mainsheet or guy line. Sold by the foot.

  • Style: 12-strand single braid
