Maxibraid is a 12-strand single-braid rope constructed from Honeywell Spectra® fiber. Spectra® has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any synthetic or natural fiber, and it floats. The integral Maxijacket High Performance coating firms the construction, increases wear life and helps keep contaminants out of the rope.

Shark Byte 12 is a 12-strand single braid product where the individual strands are a composite of copolymer olefins mixed randomly with Vectran LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) fiber. This product is the first synthetic rope ever designed from the ground up to resist shark-bite damage.

Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Honeywell Spectra® fiber enhanced with Yale’s Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.

Uniline is a parallel-core cable of PET (polyester) filament. The Uniline core is bonded together with a rubber-based adhesive, wrapped with red rubber tape, over-braided with a tough polyester sleeve and entirely saturated with another rubber solution.

Unitrex XS Max Wear, Uniline's high-tech cousin, is a parallel-core rope of Honeywell Spectra®, wrapped with a neoprene tape and over-braided with a tough jacket of high-tenacity polyester. The result is a synthetic cable, somewhat stiffer than your usual rope, which is much like wire in its stretch characteristics.

Vectrus is a single-braid rope of 100% Vectran™ LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and is always treated with Yale’s Maxijacket coating to increase abrasion resistance and enhance the fibers' UV resistance. LCP is more tolerant of tighter bending radii in terminations than other high-modulus fibers.

Yalex is a single-braid, 12-strand rope constructed of specially lubricated 1W81 high-tenacity polyester. 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.
