Novabraid's XLE Performer and XLE-Z Feel Performer (a.k.a. "Easy Feel") are 100% polyester ropes. These two ropes are quite similar, the main difference being that E-Z Feel has an "easy grip" cover. For more details, read on.

XLE Performer Series is our top of the line extra low elongation, 100% polyester double braid. Novabraid's XLE is made from the highest quality polyester available for both core and cover. This high tenacity polyester fiber rope is easy to handle and splice while offering maximum abrasion resistance. Colors are made of solution dyed Firebrite 2000 polyester and are available in red, green, blue and black. This super strong, low stretch double braid is ideal for all running rigging applications on performance cruisers and racing boats.
XLE-Z Feel Performer is an extra low elongation, 100% Polyester double braid like the standard XLE but with a cover constructed from DuPont's Type 77 Dacron, long staple, spun filament, yarn. XLE-Z Feel delivers higher strength performance than similar spun polyester braids while continuing to provide an excellent feel, wet or dry. Recommended for running rigging applications that are frequently handled such as main sheets, jib sheets and control lines.
