Stable but flexible, wear-resistant in jammers and winches. It maintains its softness. Recommended for halyards, toppings, tackles, and control lines on cruising boats. Ideal for sheets of maxi sailing yacht. This is a lovely rope and proving to be very popular with it's combination of low cost and low stretch.
Where most similar polyester on polyester yachting braids have 9-10% and often more stretch, Star has only 5.5% at 30%. Consider that next to a dyneema cored braid with 3% at 30% and you can see why this Star is so popular with cruisers or those on a budget.
This is also a good hard wearing rope due to it's cover constriction.
