Because it's braided, not twisted it won't rotate when loaded. It rolls up into a small coil and won't kink like wire rope. It has limited stretch if used at least at a 7:1 design factor. It's important to store these lines away when not in use and avoid getting them dirty or running over them with equipment.
We are selling a lot of this rope for replacing wire rope winch lines for marine and commercial fishing; soft shackles for vehicle recovery and helicopter long lines.
If the ends get damaged on slings, bridles or long lines, we can shorten, splice and re-certify them so they can be put back in use.
