Thanks for the critique. It seems I deleted a letter in the description. My specification as delivered by Tartan Yachts show Samson XLS, 9/16" diameter. By visual inspection

...from the manufacturer:
SAMSON XLS YACHT BRAID
FIBER (CORE/COVER):POLYESTER / POLYESTER
OUBLE BRAID CLASS I
Cruising sailors who desire optimal performance will appreciate this low stretch construction, smooth rendering, and long life of the 3-end per carrier cover over a polyester core
