Q-12 DEFENDER

Q-12 Defender is a 12-strand line based on Samson's unique, patented reduced recoil technology. When this line is subjected to excessive tension loads, the lower elongating fibers will break first, transferring the load to the remaining specially-designed control strands. This creates an indication of rope failure before the rope completely separates. Q-12 Defender incorporates Samson's proprietary DPXTM fiber technology on the surface of the rope to provide excellent coefficient of friction properties, while Dyneema® provides high strength, superior abrasion resistance, and low elongation. Q-12 Defender is flexible, UV resistant, lightweight, and does not hockle.
