Clara Premium has been two years in development and testing. Without a doubt, this is the best rope we have ever had. It is destined to set a new standard being superior to any Japanese rope we have used so far.
The weight is 17g per meter. The diameter is between 5% and 10% over the nominal size to allow stretching and therefore not to be under specification.
Each of the three strands has 6 sub-plies/strands, each of 5 yarns twisted together. The reason for this construction is to create a super flexible, smooth, loose-laid rope that is also durable and forgiving of rough handling. With this rope, you'll get the best of both worlds, long life and optimum feel and handling.
The rope has a slight odor due to the dyeing of the fiber which will disappear completely after a few days to give way to it's sweet-smelling due to eco-friendly production methods. Wet treating is entirely pointless as it is perfect right off the reel.
