Dyneema - 30 kg x 20 metres. For running rigging, white, braided. 0.4 mm dia, 30 kg breaking strain.

The supplies of our Dyneema lines vary from time to time. Expect the exact size, tightness of braid, finish, stiffness, etc to vary from batch to batch.

Use only Dyneema rigging line on competition boats. The wear and stretch resistance is superior to that for Dacron.

Use with 057-120 bowsies. Dyneema does not melt so you cannot seal the end of the line or a knot by using a flame or soldering iron. Instead cut Dyneema with very sharp scissors to ensure a clean cut. Alternatively use a thin cyanoacrylate glue to stiffen the line where it is to be cut and use a sharp cutting knife (we use snap off blades to ensure a sharp edge) on a cutting mat to make a clean cut at an acute angle to the line. This provides a neat needle like point that can be threaded through bowsies and other fittings.

Use a figure of eight, stopper or stevedore knot with bowsies. Use a loop with an overhand knot or a bowline with hooks. Seal knots with a spot of cyanoactrylate glue.
