Marlows new EXCEL R8 leads the way in dinghy rope technology
This year Marlows technical team have worked hard to ensure that for 2017-18 they will be launching the Excel R8, a new line in the highly regarded Excel Dinghy range tested by both the British and US Sailing Teams. This new product compliments the existing family of products, using a Dyneema® SK78 core with an 8 plait cover blended from Technora® and polyester. It is available in 4mm and 5mm, ideal as a halyard working well in cleats, as well as 7 and 8mm where it can be tapered and works as a high-performance sheet operating well in ratchet blocks.
