Upgrade your rigging without going to the extreme. Designed for the club racer, but also suitable for the performance-oriented cruiser, MLX is a new double braid construction that incorporates a first-of-its-kind core with a polyester cover. The unique core is a blend of a new and exclusive fiber, InnegraTM-S, a high modulus polypropylene (HMPP), and Dyneema®, a high modulus polyethylene (HMPE). InnegraTM-S is available to the rope industry only through Samson, and provides a bridge between the performance characteristics and price tags of traditional synthetic fibers, such as nylon and polyester, and high-performance synthetic fibers such as Technora®, Dyneema®, and Vectran®. MLX is a lightweight core-dependent line that has excellent strength and low stretch. The core is Samthane coated to match the color of the cover, making the line strippable for greater weight savings.
