FORCE-8

The unique, patented construction of Force-8 has a firm cross-section, resulting in reduced compression-flattening and minimal diving on winch drums, while still providing high strength, low weight, and excellent flex-fatigue resistance. Force-8 is available in long, continuous lengths and can be easily inspected for internal and external strand wear. Samthane coating adds to its durability without affecting its flexibility or ease of splicing. Force-8 is recommended for split-drum or singke-drum winch applications. It is not recommended for use on H-bitts, capstans, or cleats if surging or rendering the rope is required.
