Samson’s Xceed-78 is specifically for use on today’s high-performance megayachts where extreme loads on halyards and sheets demand a large diameter line. Xceed-78 combines the high strength, low creep and extremely low weight of a 100% braided Dyneema® SK-78 core with the protection of a heavy duty all-polyester cover. The cover is designed to protect the core from abrasion and provide grip for winches where necessary. The core incorporates Samson’s proprietary Samthane coating, allowing the cover to be stripped to reduce weight.
