Samson Ropes Amsteel AS78 Spectra: 1/8″ (3mm)


Light as a feather, strong as steel. Size-for-size, Samson Ropes Amsteel AS-78 has the same strength as steel yet it is so light that it even floats.

We recommend all sailors keep a couple 5-10 ft. pieces of this rope in a few different diameters on the boat as backup – perfect for emergency replacements or repairs if a hound or shackle fails.

This line is used on all Melges Boats.
