Novabraid's NOV–EIGHT 8 plait rope combines the strength and tenacity of a durable single braid Nylon Rope with a firm square braid that feeds well in modern anchor windlasses.

Easy to handle, Nov–Eight stows in anchor lockers using a fraction of the space of equivalent size and length 3 strand ropes. Nov–Eight resists twisting and hockling making anchor deployment and retrieval easy and stress free.

Nov–Eight is ideal for use in marine applications that demand a high level of elasticity built into the rope to absorb shock loads. Built from high tenacity Nylon 6.6 yarns, Nov–Eight grabs in the jaws of popular marine windlasses and can be spliced directly to chain to create a strong and durable anchor rode that lasts for many seasons.

Nov–Eight is initially soft to the touch but is designed to be firm to use after wetted and dried on its initial use.

Nov-Eight 8-Plait Anchor Rode

Purchased 250' of 1/2" at a very good price and R&W shipped it fast and free. Using it for a secondary/lunch hook anchor and I wanted line that is easy to handle and stow. It came with the ends taped, not heat fuse which is a good thing: I wanted to eye splice a thimble into one end then heat fuse and whip the other. I used the Samson 8-strand class I eye splice instructions PDF ( just Google for it) With the added help from YouTube videos the splice (finally) came out pretty nice.
