The New England Endura Braid has a textured weave making holding onto these colorful sheets easier. It has been upgraded with a low-stretch, low-creep Dyneema DSK-78 core, which is great for highly loaded applications. The core fiber is UV-stable, abrasion-resistant, lightweight and water-repellant. Its core is Marine-Tech-coated, color-coded, and UV resistant, so the cover can be stripped and buried for even lighter halyards and spinnaker sheets. It is easy to splice and taper.
