The lowest stretch all-polyester line. 

Patented all-polyester braid with parallel core construction and a filament/spun cover for improved handling and greater abrasion resistance. One third less stretch than Sta-Set at only a small price premium. In many applications, Sta-Set X can be used in lieu of expensive racing braids, especially when sized conservatively. Soft cover improves grip in the hand and on a winch. White Sta-Set X is identified by two fine red tracers in the cover forming the characteristic “X.” Color-coded red, blue and green Sta-Set X has bold colored “X” flecks for easy line identification. Stretch: 1.95% at 20% of breaking strength.
