Double braid any idea ?

Got his double braid , any idea what it is ?

16 strand polyester outer (I think)

The inner braid is kevlar which is an 8 braid plait, but when stripped it looks like each plait is made up of two strands

Re: Double braid any idea ?

I think it is Marlow I've had a look but can't quite place it.

Welcome to Marlow Ropes Ltd

It might be English Braids though.

Welcome to English Braids

Drop them both an email with a pic I'm sure they will get back to you.
