Marlow ins Excel Racing is favored by dinghy and sport boat sailors, because it lasts longer than similar low-stretch, high-strength lines. Its strength comes from its braided Dyneema core. Its tightly woven 16-plait cover makes it durable and easy to grip in small diameters. This small diameter braid can be stripped and buried to save weight. It is pre-stretched and is flexible through tight radus blocks. These sizes can be spliced when the cover is removed.
