New England Classic 3-Strand Polyester Rope is a continuous filament 3-strand polyester rope with a traditional look and feel. The New England Classic can be used as a replacement for woven wire rope. Featuring very little stretch, sails can be hoisted tight without fear of overstressing, which is especially important at night or in a storm. The New England Classic stretches a bit more than wire but will not corrode, fatigue or snag. Great for halyards, control lines and cruising headsail luff reinforcement (storm jibs and drifters).
