To use the rope selector please use the filter on the left to make a selection based on your requirements.

Please note there are specific product selectors for Leisure Marine, Commercial Marine, Safety, Lifting & Winching, Windows & Small Cords and for All Ropes and Cords.

The Vectran strength member is covered by a polyester cover to protect from UV and is sold in shorter lengths as a retail product.

Vectran®, the unique fibre spun from liquid crystal polymer, has some quite impressive properties. Stability is its greatest asset with no movement in the rope at working loads. Although the durability of Dyneema® has taken some attraction away from Vectran® ropes, the sheer immovability Vectran® gives a rope in the form of low stretch and more importantly, low creep makes this rope a winning option for racing dinghies.
