Mega Max

Double Braid


Mega Max

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.

* 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 Mega Max 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.
