Amsteel Blue from Samson is a high-performance 12-strand single braid of 100% Dyneema fiber. It offers the highest strength single braid available from Samson, offering a maximum in strength-to-weight ratio, very low stretch, and is stronger than the same sized wire rope constructions — yet it floats. The Samthane coating enhances an already high abrasion and cut resistance. Good for high load, static applications like halyards, wire replacement, and lightweight spinnaker sheets.

  • A line made for the high-performance sailor
  • Stronger than steel for its weight
  • Very low stretch; torque-free
  • Low creep — resists stretching under static load
  • Elongation when loaded at 30% of breaking strength is only 0.96%
  • Made with Dyneema® SK-78 HMPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) fiber
  • 12-Strand hollow braid construction
  • Splicing technique: full-bury 12-strand splice
  • SOLD BY THE FOOT
