Hi. This is Kyle from APS and I'm here to share with you some of the characteristics of Finish Line by New England Ropes.
This is an all polyester line. It is available in three colors and in four diameters, the 1/8", the 5/32", 3/16", and 1/4". A good all-around control line, halyard line on dinghies and on larger boats for some smaller control lines and just lashings. It is a 8 plait cover. It's kind of nubby. It's easy to hold on to. It's a parallel pre-stretched core. It's not strippable or spliceable. You would have to tie this on. Even this smaller 1/8" is got a nubby kind of feel, so it's got a bit of a texture that's easier to grip. It's very flexible. The 1/8", the 5/32", and the 3/16", and the 1/4".
