These spun polyester ropes are designed to blend visually into your hemp rope kits while providing the durability of a synthetic, perfect for uplines.
Standing for "Portside Out, Starboard Home," POSH was originally designed for Tall Ship Sailing.The dense, fine polyester fibers are spun under tension resulting in extremely low elongation, so these ropes will maintain their original length even through heavy use. POSH® carries a manufacturer load rating of 554kg linear and 5.44kN.
Each 30ft length of 6mm POSH® is hand-finished with our trademark bomb-proof whipping, done in an exclusive bright orange (rather than our traditional black) to better differentiate these ropes in your kit. POSH is available in "natural" beige, black, red, and the occasional limited run specialty color.
Due to the high fiber density, POSH® can have a stiff hand at first. A quick wash/no-heat dry cycle will loosen it up rather nicely. Unlike other "synthetic hemp" ropes (such as the polypropylene HempEx®) POSH stays smooth and does not become fuzzy.
