AU$5.27

synthetic SK-78 is one of the new generation UHMWPE fibres where stretch and creep have been reduced to negligible levels. A step up from synthetic SK-75 rope and Spectra Rope, synthetic SK-78 is almost on par with Vectran Rope as far as stretch and creep are concerned, but has better UV and chafe resistance meaning a longer service life and less maintenance. It is slowly becoming clear that in the battle between the new generation of high tec fibers like Kevlar, Vectran, PBO and Spectra, synthetic SK-78 is emerging as the best performing and most practical option for yacht rigging and other high spec applications.
