Samson Selects Innegrity™ S Fiber For Line Of Sailing Ropes

Samson Rope Technologies Inc. — a Ferndale, Wash.-based developer and manufacturer of
high-performance ropes and cordage — has chosen Simpsonville, S.C.-based Innegrity LLC’s
ultra-lightweight, polypropylene-based Innegra™ S fiber for its new line of MLX ropes for the
sailing market. Innegra S fiber is stronger, more lightweight and more reactive than traditional
nylon and polyester, and also is more economically priced, according to Innegrity. Samson created
the MLX line for club racers, but it reports the ropes also are appropriate for
performance-oriented cruisers.
