Double Esterlon is a double-braided rope constructed of premium over finish polyester fiber in both the sleeve and core. This product is identified by two green strands braided into the cover structure and is available with optional Maxijacket urethane coating to further enhance the rope’s wear resistance.

Featured Applications

Arborist
Industrial

Optimus is a single-braid 12-strand rope manufactured from a solution-dyed polyester and coated with our riggers-grade, abrasion-resistant coating to maximize protection. The vibrant polyester colorfast fibers are resistant to fading and provide lifelong visibility.

Featured Applications

Arborist
Industrial

Polydyne is a double-braided rope that utilizes a polyester sleeve over a nylon core. Despite the dissimilar stretch characteristics of these fibers, Yale engineers have produced constructions where both fibers contribute.

XTR 12 is an arborist rigger's line with a "nubby" texture to allow for better control. Its construction yields a light yet strong line that provides lifetime flexibility while maintaining abrasion resistance.

Featured Applications

Arborist

XTR 16 was designed specifically for the demanding needs of the professional arborist. The tight-braid polyester cover over a bundled parallel core gives a firm, round feel and offers high snag and abrasion resistance.

Featured Applications

Arborist

Yalex is a single-braid 12-strand rope constructed of premium over finish polyester fiber. Yalex’s two-end-per-carrier structure creates a larger void in the middle of the rope, which makes it easier to splice and makes used-rope splicing much easier to perform.
