Ropes are for cowboys.

Actually, since it's not in any use on a boat, I'd say it's still a rope. :P

However, I can't be any more helpful as far as answering the question goes, other than to say it's braided, probably nylon?

I know it's not nice to answer a question with a question, but why do you need to know?

It's going to be almost impossible to identify the brand by the picture, unless there was only manufacturer of braided grey w/ turquoise tracer line ever. Doubt it. Are you trying to replace it with similar color/performance?

Well, it does have a red fleck in the turquoise tracer...so it is probably unique to the line brand.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Bingo, great line. Can you show a picture of the core? Should be Dyneema, SK75.

Damn, LINE. oops.

I wanted to know because I just like the colors of the line, very low stretch too. I'll check out the recommendations, thanks. Can' t get a picture of the core, it's spliced and whipped.

Thanks again.

That's it, the core is blue as well. Pricey though.

Thanks again.
