The rope is designed to offer a softer rope than a standard polyester while ensuring that all of the existing qualities are maintained.

The 3 strand matt polyester offers a softer finish to a standard 3 strand polyester. This characteristic promotes the grip when wet yet slightly at the expense of the durability and strength of the product. The product is designed to be torsionally stable through the correct blend of yarns to maximise the strength and abrasion characteristics.
