Nystron 12mm (1/2")
Samson's Nystron offers impressive working loads and break strengths with added energy absorption.
Nystron double-braid provides the advantages of high strength retention, and great energy absorption / shock mitigation. Nystron resists abrasion and works especially well in wet environments.
Nystron combines the durability and abrasion resistance of a polyester jacket with a more energy-absorbing nylon core. This is especially useful when using Nystron in negative blocking, such as large removals.

Ratings & Reviews
Great at absorbing shock, especially compared to stable braid. Stable braid in my opinion is more durable. Both work best run through blocks, but it seems like this one is more prone to plucking on rough bark. It does shine at negative rigging, especially without enough room to let it run.
