Shark Byte 8 is an 8-plait construction that is a composite of copolymer olefins and polyester. It is made to match existing mooring line systems.
This product was designed to have a higher specific gravity to ensure it would be a sinking rope, and also to be a less-expensive alternative to the Shark Byte 12 product.

* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the maximum working load.
** The estimated residual strength is from laboratory and tank bite tests and may not represent the effects during actual use.
Specific Gravity: 1.14
