Bzzz Line™ is a 12-strand single braid that combines the softness of spun polyester with lightweight multifilament polypropylene in a rope that is easy to hold and grip, absorbs very little water, and will not kink. The unique combination of filament and spun polyester with multi-filament polypropylene makes it soft on the hand, lightweight, and buoyant. Unlike other single braids that flatten out after time or squish too much in cleats, Bzzz Line retains its round shape, allowing for better grip and ease of cleating.
