TENEX

Tenex is a 12-strand single braid that offers high strength with low stretch and outstanding abrasion resistance. It is Samthane coated to provide abrasion resistance, enhance wear life, snag resistance, and increase ease of splicing. It is a viable alternative to using double braids when easy field splicing and economy are major considerations.
