Extremely lightweight and very high strength. New England Ropes WR2 (Wire Rope Replacement) is perfect for replacing lifelines or standing rigging on many types of boats. WR2 is lighter, more flexible and has a much longer service life than wire. It is 100% Dyneema double braid featuring SK-78 fiber. Coated with our proprietary urethane coating, it holds up very well in the marine environment. Comes in two sizes, 3mm and 5mm, and is available in white or gray color.
