Turbo-RC

Turbo-RC has the firmness and low stretch of wire, yet only 1/6th the weight. The durable "turbo" braided jacket is very cut and abrasion resistant and protects the 12-strand single braid strength-member core, made of Dyneema® SK78. Turbo-RC spools on winches easily, does not rust or "fish hook" like wire rope, and it floats. Turbo-RC is specially designed for improved service life in applications where creep results from long-term static loads. Both cover and core are coated with a Samthane coating. Turbo-RC has been verified by ABS according to MEG4, and is type approved by ABS. Turbo-RC is available with the option of sustainable, bio-sourced fiber. Now, reducing your impact on the planet doesn't mean reducing quality or sacrificing strength.
