DWX Raid Braid
BEST VALUE - 3/16",1/4", 5/16" & 3/8" double braid
Duckworks has always offered marine rope at better prices than the competition, but with the release of our Raid Braid we've raised the bar significantly. This new yacht braid, made exclusively for us, is a low-stretch polyester double-braid perfect for halyards, sheets, and various control lines—but it's also stronger, more durable, and better performing than our previous economy double-braid. Raid Braid offers excellent handling and easy splicing, and instead of coming from overseas, it's made right here in the USA.
Available in three colors:
- "Yacht White" with signature DWX Raid yellow tracer.
- "Traditions" a classic natural tan color to complement wooden or traditional boats, but with the same modern, low-stretch double-braid performance.
- "Stainless" with a white fleck and signature DWX Raid yellow tracer.
I've been using the Raid Braid you sent me on my SEI for a while now, and thoroughly approve.
I've used it as the main halyard on a 107 sq ft balanced lugsail. The boat being 15 feet long and quite stable puts a lot of load on that line at times, and it's performing well. Elongation under this load is minimal, not at all noticeable, it's very easy to handle and - in particular - wraps around the cleat and hold better than the stiffer rope that is common in this size. It also looks nicer on my somewhat traditional boat than the brighter colours, and its very easy on the hands.
Ten out of ten!
