sailingdog The negative qualities of three-strand make it a non-starter if you can afford megaplait or one of the double-braids. The double braids and megaplait also have very good stretch characteristics.

sailingdog The new double-braids probably stow as neatly as the MegaPlait. It is also stronger than the MegaPlait. 5/8" MegaPlait has an minimum breaking strength of 10000 lbs. 5/8" Samson SUPER STRONG ANCHOR LINE has a minimum breaking strength of 12900 lbs., and an average breaking strength of 15200 lbs.

In what way better? I thought the Mega stuff was supposed to be the best?

It folds up the smallest and easiest in the anchor locker at least doesn't it?

New England Ropes Mega Plait

I'm considering using New England Ropes Mega Plait spliced to chain to make up a new anchor rode and would appreciate any user reviews. TIA
