BS ALERT and a BIG BS ALERT it is.
There is absolutely no way you HAVE to use 'Lewmar' rope, what a complete crock of excrement. The word that can only apply to this is 'Up-sell', actually 2 words, the other being ********.
And experience has shown Lewmars to be very hut and miss on 8 braid, mostly miss.
A bit part of my job is getting anchor winches to work
Use a Samson
Pro-set or the New England
Ropes version and you will be using 'Lewmar' rope.
You catch my drift here
Just be a bit careful doing all that reading here sauve. You may actually learn lots of truths and the big companies marketing
departments won't like that
