    Sean it says they have hunter green, but I couldn't find it in the 5/8"? It's cool that they'll embroider the boat name for free.

    I have a set of the Top Knot lines, use them as day lines, and have not been too impressed. One windy overnite and they were chaffed where they were on the dock cleat. Have another set in the slip from West Marine that are, IMO, much better quality. Nylon is much more abrasion resistant than poly. Just an opinion for what it's worth.

    7,076 These lines BLOW!!! One tore on my boat as it was tied up at LOTO last year and scratched my new decal off the boat and the other four lines I have in my slip suck even worse. In a month they were faded and now they are literally falling apart. Total crap.

    Stop wasting money on the lines with the sewn loops. I've seen these break many times, no matter which company made them; they are simply not nearly as strong as the same size nylon.

    Call Miami Cordage at (800) 226-7673 or (305) 636-3000 and ask for Joe. They are moving their web site (, so it's down right now.

    They will make true double-braid nylon lines to your specifications (diameter, color, length and loop size) for prices that are competitive with the ready-made stuff. They even whip both the splices and the butt ends, so you can color-code your lines for different lengths, or whatever. They're used by the Navy, Coast Guard, Royal Carribean, Carnival and others - good enough for me!

    Further details here.

    Strength ratings:

    3/8" nylon double-braid: 4,200#
    7/16" polypropylene: 3,200#
    1/2" nylon double-braid: 7,600#

    5/8" polypropylene: 5,600#
    5/8" nylon double-braid: 13,500#

    3/4" polypropylene: 8,800#
    3/4" nylon double-braid: 17,500#

    These ratings are on new, non-sewn line. I don't know how much the sewing damages the polypropylene line, but all the failures that I've seen are right at the sewn area. Since the nylon eyes are spliced, strength should be about 80% of their original rating. From the pricing point of view, it all depends on if you look at it in terms of $/diameter or $/strength.

    I have had these for 2 years now and my Cig and I love them. They dry well, have not faded and float. I would buy more in a heartbeat from them.
