5/8" Dia. Nylon Brait - 8 Plait Construction Line, Sold by the Foot
Originally designed for commercial shipping use, Yale Brait has found a strong following among pleasure marine enthusiasts. Because of its plaited construction, Brait absorbs more energy than all other lines and it does not hockle. As a result, hardware on both deck and dock undergo less wear and tear. It handles easier and stows in much less space than traditional three-strand line. Plus, Brait absorbs up to 85% more energy before breaking than traditional lines. Brait is the hands-down choice of premium windlass manufacturers, like Maxwell, for trouble-free operation without hockles and kinks. For added durability and performance, Brait is tuck-spliced by hand to Cordage Institute standards.
