Fall River, MA – March 8, 2011 – New England Ropes Endura Braid is the Practical Sailor Best Choice among braided cover running rigging options as noted in their November 2010 issue. Practical Sailor editors believed that Endura Braid outperformed other comparable products that they tested and that it would be the best choice for their readers looking to purchase such products.
The products tested were compared in the following areas: Rope Elasticity, Durability, and Ease of Handling. Testers also considered ease of application, coating adhesion to substrate, resistance to abrasion, and overall customer value. According to Practical Sailor “New England Ropes’ high-tech Endura Braid proved to be the line-handlers’ favorite due to its supple feel and lack of any tendency to hockle.”
New England Ropes’ Sta-Set also received honorable mention in the budget rope category getting high marks for the reduced stretch and high tensile strength it offers. Practical Sailor also likes that Sta-Set can be used as a halyard but at the same time sells for a good price.
