Xceed-78 Meets Demand for Mega Yacht Rigging

Ferndale, WA – August 15, 2012 – Samson, the worldwide leader in performance rope, is introducing a new line to its portfolio of high tech sail rigging; Xceed-78. Xceed-78 was developed with input and testing of high end riggers and competitive racers.
 
Xceed-78 is specifically designed for use on mega yachts where large diameter lines are required to handle the extreme loads placed on halyards and sheets. Made with a 100% Dyneema® SK78 fiber core, Xceed-78 combine shigh strength, low weight, and improved creep performance for better stability under static loads. The all polyester cover is designed to protect the core from abrasion and provide grip for winches where necessary. The core incorporates Samson’s proprietary Samthane coating, allowing the cover to be stripped to reduce weight.
 
Samson’s newest recreational marine products continue to set the standard for high performance and can be trusted as a safe and secure application around the boat.
