English Braids 3 strand pre-stretched polyester rope is a cable laid rope of premium quality. This is a rope that exceeds the requirements of British standards and is a performance product with low stretch and superb stability. The rope is post lay heat treated under tension for reduced extension and to relieve stresses in laying up. This makes for a performance rope with less inclination to hockle or kink, yet retaining splicing ease.
