Quick Launch

CONTROL-DPX

Product Code:888

Fiber:Dyneema® - Polyester Blend

Specific Gravity:1.14

Splice:12-Strand Class II

Color Options:


Control-DPX™ combines Dyneema® fiber and Samson's patented DPX™ fiber technology into a strong, lightweight line that is winch and cleat friendly, while being incredibly easy on the hands. DPX™ adds the grip and "soft-hand" feel of spun polyester to the lightweight strength of Dyneema® fiber. The result is an easily spliced, 12-strand single braid that performs well where winches are required without an added cover, while retaining the great "feel" you want in a mainsheet or guy line.
