Product Overview

High performance line for the competitive sailor. 

Excellent flexibility, torque-free, superb handling double braid with HTS-78 core and proprietary coating that splices and tapers easily. Endura Braid combines a low-stretch core with the long-lasting durability of a polyester cover. Great for applications needing less stretch than allowed by Sta-Set, but more affordable than Vectran or Technora braids. Cover Fiber/Construction: Braided polyester twill. Core Fiber/Construction: 12-strand coated Dyneema® SK-78. Stretch: 0.65% at 20% of breaking strength.
