Lugger Line

Lugger Line

Lugger Line™ is a 12-strand single braid of copolymer olefins. Polypropylene and high- density polyethylene are co-extruded to form the fiber. Upon cooling, the molten poly-ethylene and polypropylene material coalesce into a unique fiber with tenacity comparable to polyester but without the friction associated with polypropylene filament. The rope is lightweight, floats, and remains flexible even in freezing conditions, and it won't kink or hockle. Splicing is fast using our single-braid splice instructions. Standard color is international orange.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instant changes in load up or down in excess of 10% of the rope's rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
