Holdfast Rope

Just as the sailors of yore, we too are inspired by the strong grip of the holdfast which has a grip similar to that of our aquatic friends: mussels and barnacles. That’s why we chose Holdfast as the name for a line that is the perfect match of strength and grip.

This ropes utilizes HMPE and Nylon fibers to deliver a lightweight, high-strength, floating line that will grip on H-bitts and capstans much better than traditional 100% HMPE lines. Holdfast is coated with TEUFELBERGER’s proprietary abrasion resistant coating that is specially formulated to yield higher strength better grip and more durable and water-resistant lines. Holdfast is available in a variety of colors.

Features:

  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Easy to inspect
  • Maximum strength to weight ratio
  • Extremely low stretch
  • Easy to splice
  • Floats
  • UV stable
