Yale Cordage XTC is a tight braid consisting of 16 individual strands of polyester. A high-twist core of torque-balanced polyester keeps the construction firm and round, providing an extra measure of safety. XTC has an abrasion-resistant construction and has excellent energy absorption characteristics. This flipline is spliced with a triple-locking carabiner end, and the other end is backspliced to prevent flipline adjuster coming off.
