New England Ropes in Finish Line is the strongest pre-stretch line on the market. You can use it for every line that must hold throughout your race from the start to the finish line. Its 8-strand ﾓnubby cover is easy on the hands, flexible, and easy to knot. A continuous Polyester filament core gives Finish Line its high strength and low stretch characteristics. At this price, why wouldn't you be safe and replace those frequently used and abused centerboard lines, outhauls, and hiking straps before their covers tear and their cores snap?
