Spliced, Not Crimped
Like all of Yale's wire core fliplines, the Maxi-Flip Sport features a "Free Flex" flemish eye splice. This method is more labor-intensive, but it is superior because it's much more flexible and yields longer service life than traditional crimped fliplines.
Designed to be Lightweight
Maxi-Flip Sport fliplines come only in 1/2" diameter, but they use the same 7/32" cable as the regular Maxi-Flip models. This means they are just as strong, but lighter. In fact, they come with aluminum hardware too, utilizing a slick ISC aluminum snap hook. Ultimately, the Maxi-Flip Sport weighs 25% less than standard Maxi-Flip fliplines.
