I did not check all lines but in the 1/2" size I was looking for, the only apples to apples I could see between the sites was for Sampson LS Yacht Braid and WM was .78/ft and Defender was .89/ft.
The other comparison I did was between Sampson XLS Yacht Braid and New England
ropes Sta-set Yacht Braid. I have no idea if these line are comparable but the stated breaking strength of the 1/2" N.E. Rope
is 9200 lb and the Sampson Yacht Braid is 8300 lb. My assumption is the N.E. Rope
is a better line because of this?
Maybe not, but at Defender the Sampson is $1.24/ft and at WM the N.E. line is 1.20/ft for an arguably better line.
Maybe I am lucky the size I need is cheaper at WM, but only during this sale
. It could be every other line is more expensive at WM but this was the extent of my comparison.
