Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!
Ease of installation,
I am sure I could come up with a few more but these are off the top of my head.
The weight difference is less than that of a case of beer left on deck.
The price of used 1x19 is probaly less than the cost of high tech fibre.
1x19 is extremely smooth, and offers zero discomfort. I find the peace of mind it gives far more comfortable than synthetic line.
I havent found to hard to install, and once installed, you dont have to do it again for 30 years or more.
