Hi, this is Kyle from APS. I'm here to share with you some of the characteristics of Salsa Line by New England Ropes. This is available in three different diameters: the 1/4", 5/16", and 3/8".

It's a single-braid construction. It's a blend of Dyneema DSK-78 and a spun polyester. The spun gives it a little bit of fuzziness and makes it easier to hold onto. It's a very flexible, round but soft line. It's going to be low water absorption, low stretch, and kind of a delight to hold onto. Dingy and small-keel boat main and jib sheets. With the 1/4", this is spliceable on terms of an eye splice. You can do a standard 12-strand eye splice in this. This is the 5/16". Again, just a nice hand to it. Then in the 3/8". This is Salsa Line by New England Ropes.
