CONTROL-DPX

Sheets, halyards, and control lines just got a little easier to handle. Control-DPXTM combines Dyneema® fiber and Samson's patented DPXTM technology into a strong, lightweight line that is winch- and cleat-friendly while being incredibly easy on the hands. DPXTM adds the grip and "soft-hand" of spub 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. Control-DPXTM is not recommended for use with self-tailing winches.
