Combining premium nylon fiber with a high-quality marine coating and New England Rope’s superior manufacturing processes produces line that is five times more abrasion-resistant when wet than any other nylon line. You can actually feel this critical performance advantage when you handle the supple line. The finish lubricates individual yarn fibers so they resist moisture penetration, which dramatically increases resistance to abrasion, both internally and externally, and helps keep the line supple throughout its life. Stretch: 16% at 15% of breaking strength.
Black* is a practical choice because dirt and weathering show less than on white. Like our white three-strand nylon, this line is made in a four-stage process which results in a very uniform, abrasion-resistant line that will outlast bargain brand line many times over. Its firm, yet flexible construction is chafe-resistant and is easy to splice. Stretch: 12% at 20% of breaking strength.
*Approximately 10-15% less strength than White Premium Three-Strand Nylon.

Comments about Premium Black Three Strand Nylon Line:
New England Rope are the only manufacturer of line that produce a nylon line with great hand and the ability to reliably hold a splice. When you want the spring of nylon with a hand similar to old school dacron this is the stuff.
