Mega Max is double braid rope with a unique design that provides the ultimate in abrasion protection while still providing the highest strength possible, all in a Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber construction.
The load bearing core is made of 12-strand Ultrex and provides 100% of the strength in this design. It is then over-braided and protected again by UHMWPE fiber, the most abrasion resistant fiber available.
Mega Max is well suited for use in high contact abrasion applications as found in industrial industries.
Mega Max is well suited for use in high contact abrasion applications as found in commercial fishing applications.
This product is ideally suited for face lines, wing wires, mooring lines and other applications on deck.

* 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 318 ft. lbs./lb.
Red ultimate 8,300 ft. lbs./lb.
Specific Gravity: 0.97
Dielectric Strength: The maximum allowable leakage for clean, dry Ultrex is 75 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.
Approved Splice Technique: #10015106, #10018007.
