Rope Construction: Double Braid Polyester

A double braid rope refers to a braided rope cover over a braided rope core. Basically, it is a rope over another rope. These ropes are often flexible and easy to handle. Most double braid ropes are spliceable. Double braid rope is often called yacht braid and can be made with combinations of fibers or the same fibers. To get a stiffer or firmer double braid rope, the cover can be braided tighter which increases its “hardness.”

**This rope is a firm rope and very difficult if not impossible to splice.  It is a braided rope over another braided rope, however it has a tighter braid in the cover to stiffen the rope.  This is a great rope.  Although it is tighter and stiffer than most double braids, it is not as stiff as halter cords. (Previously known as 12 Pick)

Rope Fibers:  Polyester over Polyester

Due to its strength, low stretch, excellent sunlight resistance, and excellent abrasion resistance properties, polyester is a preferred fiber for many natural horse trainers.

    Best halter rope I’ve found! Not stiff, not soft, has a memory, & holds up extremely well to use.

    I like the diameter and flexibility of this rope for halters. Down side is that it isn't spliceable.

    1/4" Great for making horse halters!

    Wanted a stiffer line for making horse halters and this fits the bill quite well. A little more difficult to tie than the very pliable versions of line but, for halters, this is the best.
