Yale Double Esterlon is ideal for use in lowering systems. Double Esterlon is comparable to Samson Stable Braid in terms of breaking strength, but is more elastic (stretchier). Double Esterlon is strong, durable, and low stretch (2% at 10% of breaking strength). Double Esterlon is coated with Yale's Tree-Grade Maxijacket urethane for enhanced performance and durability.
