The original, premium, ultra-lightweight hollow braid cord that Hammock Camper love so much.


"AmSteel-Blue is a high-performance 12-strand single braid of 100% Dyneema® fibre; Amsteel-blue yields the maximum strength-to-weight ratio, very low stretch, and is stronger than the same-sized wire rope—but it's so light, it floats. It has extremely low stretch, superior flex fatigue, and wear resistance. Made with Dyneema® fiber, AmSteel-Blue is Samthane coated, which enhances the fiber's already high abrasion and cut resistant characteristics. It's the highest strength single braid Samson makes. Samthane coating enhances this rope's already high abrasion and cut resistance."


NB Size 7/64" (2.5 mm) changes from 12-strand to 8-strand construction.
