Sorry I posted in two spots here. Inexperience I guess.
The line I was looking at was 5/8" 3 strand. My intent was to cut it up for dock lines. At $375 for the $600, It sounded cheap. I've gone ahead and ordered a 3' sample.
I've always used New England. Love the stuff. But with a new to me 42 and old stiff lines on the boat as dock lines for the slip and docking lines it going to be easy to cut up 200 plus ft of line.
