Dyneema - 55 kg. For running rigging, choice of colours, braided. 0.6 mm dia, 55 kg breaking strain, 20 metres.

Choose from: yellow, orange, blue.

This is a tightly braided, 8 braid, line. Will also be available in 20 metre quantities.

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.
