Lugger Line is a 12-strand single braid of copolymer olefins. Polypropylene and high-density polyethylene are coextruded to form the fiber. Upon cooling, the molten polyethylene and polypropylene material coalesce into a unique fiber with tenacity comparable to polyester but without the friction associated with polypropylene filament.
This rope is lightweight, floats, remains flexible even in freezing conditions and won't kink or hockle. Splicing is fast, using our single-braid splice instructions. The standard color for this product is International Orange.

Polydyne is used in pleasure marine as an anchoring or mooring rope.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope’s rated working load constitute hazardous shock load and would void the normal working-load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and the safe use of rope.
Green working 330 ft. lbs./lb.
Red ultimate 11,400 ft. lbs./lb.
Specific Gravity: 0.95
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry Lugger Line is 100 micro- amperes when tested at 100kV per Yale Method 712- 1701 Rev 1 “Routine Production Test.”Absorbed and entrained moisture or impurities will increase rope's conductivity dramatically.
