#FridayFocus - Gottifredi Maffioli Swiftcord

As part of this week's #FridayFocus we take a look at Gottifredi Maffioli's Swiftcord rope, perfect for halyards, sheets and control lines. Swiftcord does not twist or kink and it is particularly soft on your hands. This rope is also extremely strong because within the cover is a weaved mixture of Dyneema and a special high grip fibre.

Take a look at all of our Maffioli Swiftcord rope options.

I have used Swiftcord for about 4 years for both main and jib sheets and these are my honest opinions.
Yes, it is less likely twist or kink and it is soft on your hands.
But, it flattens over time and is extremely absorbent so it soaks up water becoming very heavy and taking a long time to dry.
