A dedicated floating winch line developed especially for self tensioning winches. This load-bearing 7 strand core combines high strength and relatively low elongation. The non-load-bearing braided jacket provides protection of the core for longer service life, and increases crew-safety by minimizing the risk of snap-back. The mooring efficiency of the vessel is enhanced by the ease of handling of the rope due to its low weight and ability to float. TIPTO® WINCHLINE does not lose its strength when wet.
