Mega Plait / Mega Braid Line

I plan to order 600' of 5/8" line to make 2 300' lines for tying to shore . I thought I knew what I wanted until I started to look at catalogs.

Can anyone tell me the real difference between New England Mega Plait, Mega Braid & Mega Braid II and Marlow Multiplait?

Also, any suggestions for the best price (shipped to a USA address).

I'm a three strand guy. But Rigging only are really helpful and I am sure that they would help you decide.

See the excellent NE & Marlow Rope sites:

One moment, testing your browser ...

Don't forget other manufacturers. I recently bought Vectran from Yale Cordage and am very impressed with price and quality. See Pleasure Marine - Yale Cordage

cheers,
Nick.
