    * Sizing Notes:

    • Rope is measured using a circumference tape under load (200 x diameter squared = load applied)
    • All sizes listed are nominal diameters and do not reflect exact dimensions
    • LS and LST Yacht Braid does run slightly smaller than our other yacht braids but falls under our tolerances for size and weight
    • XLS and Trophy Double Braid Yacht lines tend to be more consistent for sizing whether under load or at rest
