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.

Strong but susceptible to friction wear

by John

Strong rigging line for dynamic loads and heavy pulls. Only negative is looser weave will snag strands if run against limbs or stems with rough bark.
