Product Description

Double Esterlon is a double braid rope constructed of high tenacity 1W81 polyester fiber, which has a unique cordage finish. This premium yarn, with its extraordinary lubricity and Yale's careful attention to converting machinery setup, yields the highest strength double braid polyester available. By all means, this is a flagship product, one of the most tried and true ropes we sell. Double Esterlon has low stretch, high strength, excellent wear life, dielectric strength and is completely spliceable delivering the cataloged strengths when spliced properly. It is identified by two green strands braided into the cover structure, and all of our stock sizes include an optional Maxijacket urethane coating to further enhance the ropes wear resistance (this is what gives the rope its main body color).

Specific Gravity: 1.38

Can you use this for pulling cars out of deep wooded areas?  Say over a hillside 150 feet long?
1 Answer
Yes, it could certainly work for this application.  Just be mindful of the Working Load Limit for the rope (we would recommend 5:1 which is 8800 lbs).

from Fargo. ND asked:
January 12, 2020
How soft and flexible is the rope?  Is it easy to tie?
1 Answer
The outer jacket has a urethane coating (Maxijacket) that makes the rope more durable, yet a little bit stiffer.  With use, however, the rope will soften.  It's not really intended as a knot-tying rope, but we do splice it often, and Yale's Double Esterlon is probably the best splicing double braid product we carry.  It is a very well-made, high-quality rope.
