Liros Polyester Octoplait (Squareline)
Octoplait Polyester Anchor Warp Black
There is some debate about the preferred rope to use for anchor warps. The old school of thought was to go for nylon because of its high stretch properties and marginal extra strength. However nylon has some disadvantages and we believe this construction of 8 strand octoplait
polyester makes a superior anchor and long mooring warp. Nylon tends to stiffen over age and it also loses up to 10% of its strength when it is wet. Nylon does stretch more than polyester but the construction of this rope will ensure a working stretch in excess of 15% which is more than adequate to prevent snubbing. This non-kinking rope is best just flaked down into a locker or carry bag (see rope bags on this website) as it will pay out easily without the need for laborious coiling down. It is also very easy to splice onto chain.
