  • 8mm Gottifredi Maffioli Swiftcord Rope - Dyneema SK78

    8mm Gottifredi Maffioli swiftcord is perfect for ropes which are constantly adjusted as it's soft on the hands with hard wearing capabilities.

    The rope is a mix of a single braid Dyneema SK78 rope with a special non slip fibre weaved together into a rope with no core, also known as a hollow braid.

    Because the rope is a hollow braid you can feed a dyneema core up inside easily to add a taper or perform various rope tricks.

    This rope has been popular with top sailors on high performance dinghies and catamarans for years.

Wash before use

I bought this rope as a replacement mainsheet for my RS Aero. When it arrived, I thought it was very synthetic and slipped through my gloves. When wet it also left pink dye all over the boat. I took it home and washed it in the washing machine. It is now the best mainsheet I have ever had. Its's still red and black, no longer leaks colour. It puffed up and lost its synthetic feel. It is kind on my hands easy to grip, doesn't tangle itself in the bottom of the boat. Light enough to be used in light winds and strong enough for the heavy winds so there is no need to swap mainsheets to suit conditions - its perfect for them all. :)


Is this the main sheet?

Really strong, easy to use. Flows through loops with ease. Great service too.
