FORCE-8

Force-8 is a unique high-performance 8x3 construction, designed for single- and split-drum applications. It is Samthane coated, has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, and very good cut and abrasion resistance while maintaining a firm, round profile. Force-8 utilizes a counterbalanced right-left lay design, resulting in an exceptional torque-free rope.
