More information on Small Diameter High Tech Double Braids:

This section of small diameter high tech double braided lines is perfectly applied on sport boats and dinghies for use as control lines and spinnaker halyards.

 

Standard small diameter high tech double braids are the best in halyards and control lines for small boats. Most have a dyneema, vectran, or polypropylene core which makes them higher strength, with much lower stretch, than polyester small diameter double braids, while also being non water absorbing. In addition to core materials, some lines in this category use technora or PBO in their covers to provide extreme heat and abrasion resistance. This combined with their lightweight cores, allows most high tech lines to be stripped or tapered for the ultimate light air or racing sheet. The covers themselves range from 16-plait that provides a nubby grip, up to 32-plait, where the tighter braid provides more abrasion resistance, yet remains grippy.

 

APS offers a top of the range of high tech lines from the best marine rope vendors, FSE Robline, Marlow, and Yale Cordage.
