Samson Dyneema Amsteel AS-78

Price: $0.24

Product Description

Amsteel AS-78 is a high tech, 12-strand, single braid line made with Dyneema SK-78 fiber. It is one of the most advanced high strength, low stretch ropes available. This rope exhibits an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio. It is stronger than wire rope constructions, yet is just 15% the weight. Resistant to environmental degradation — AS-78 doesn't snag or "fishhook" Its single braid construction is supple, absorbs twist, and resists kinking. 

With the switch from Dyneema SK-75 used in Amsteel Blue to the "low creep" SK-78 fibers used in AS-78, this newest version of Amsteel offers improved creep performance — for superior resistance to stretching over time while under high loads. This makes it ideal for halyards, control lines, running backs, and racing sheets. 

• Much lighter than wire rope, and 30 - 40% lighter than Aramid ropes of the same strength 
• Elongation when loaded at 30% of breaking strength is less than 1% 
• Superior flex fatigue and wear resistance 
• Constructed with Dyneema® SK-78 HMPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) fiber 
• 12-Strand hollow braid construction 
• Splicing technique: full-bury 12-strand splice 
• Strengths in specification table are for spliced lines 
• Sold by the foot
