Features of Shark Byte 8 Rope

  • Sinking or Neutrally Buoyant. If you need a tough marine line that will sink into the water rather than sitting on top, consider the Shark Byte 8-plait rope. For a neutrally buoyant, consider the Shark Byte 12-strand rope.
  • Resist Fish & Shark Bites. Sharks have many razor-sharp teeth than can easily damage most ropes. If you will be working in shark frequented waters, Shark Byte rope is a must.
  • Easy to Splice. Marine workers often need to splice ropes for various applications. This rope remains incredibly strong even when spliced.
  • Superior strength. As you might expect from such a tough rope, this product delivers outstanding strength. The average break strength rating on the 1 1/8’’ diameter version of the 12-strand rope is 48,000 pounds, and 29,772 pounds for the 8-plait rope.
