Ultra Lite - Samson

Ultra Lite - Samson

Construction: Polypropylene Cover w/ a Spectra/Polypropylene Blend

This line is extremely low-stretch, lightweight and strong. It floats and absorbs no water. A 26% weight savings over 100% polyester lines. The new 24 carrier jacket has been engineered with a coating for added wear life. Boats 25' and under are using this line more and more for greater weight savings on almost every line on the boat. Expect a slightly shorter cover life than a 100% polyester line, but it's not a bad trade-off given the weight savings.

Common Applications:
On a light air day when extra weight at the clews can collapse your sail, Ultra Lite is perfect for spinnaker sheets. Commonly used as halyards and sheets for weight savings.
