Double Braid Nylon: Has excellent stretch without damaging the ropes fibres, which is why we supply nylon over polyester. RC indicates double braid nylon rope.
HMPE Hi Spec Rope: is the same stuff used in 4×4 winches. It is stronger than steel per diameter and goes a long way to adding extra length per given drum size. All HMPE rope kits come with a double braid nylon tops shot for stretch. HSC indicated HMPE line. For more information on rope varieties click here.
