Marlow D2 Racing Rope is a light weight, low stretch, high strength all round rope. It has a pre-stretched, bio-based D12 SK78 core which gives high strength capacity combined with light weight. The core and cover are colour coded so that the rope can still be identified if the cover is stripped.

It can be used to upgrade polyester halyards by choosing a smaller diameter for equivalent/improved strength combined with weight savings and handling improvements.
