Mooring lines

Has anyone experience with Amarine double braided mooring lines?
The price is great.

If you only need up to 3/4” lines they look OK. I need 1” and have found that American Rope in Miami is priced competitively. They make your lines to order and I got mine with 18” eyes and 55’ long. Black double braid with whipped ends.

They only list the breaking strength as 7700 lbs which is very low for a 5/8 double braid. Most good ones are closer to double that.

I like New England Rope. It is very good quality and lasts much longer but it isnít cheap. Their 5/8Ē tensile strength is 13100 pounds.
