As active and enthusiastic professional sailors, FSE Robline pride themselves on creating world class yachting ropes. Designed with both cruising sailors and regatta sailors in mind, FSE are a global brand with a focus on innovative materials and designs. Upffront.com are very pleased to now have FSE Robline rope for sale

FSE Robline range will complement our current product offering, sitting comfortably next to our other rope brand, Gottifredi Maffioli. Family-run, Gottifredi Maffioli boast a range that is over 4000 articles strong, providing high-tech, specialist cores and finishes for often niche, application-specific scenarios. In contrast, FSE Robline have invested considerable time and effort distilling their technical knowledge into a relatively small range of around 800 articles.

As a result, FSE Robline supply high quality ropes - with excellent handling and longevity - for a broad range of sailing applications, strengthening their position as a worldwide mainstream rope supplier.

So what sets FSE Robline rope apart? Developed by sailors for sailors, FSE cordage is developed with the 'know-how' derived from decades of expertise in manufacturing fibre ropes and frequent collaborations with Olympic gold medallists and regatta winning sailors.

In addition, FSE Robline – who are a Teufelberger brand – are making the most of technological advancements by using high performance raw materials such as Dyneema® rope, PBO and Vectran®. Production on state-of-the-art machines ensures FSE lines are able to withstand extreme conditions and, as a result, FSE Robline ropes are often used on RC44, GC32, TP52 and M32 class yachts.

As we all know, sailing is not just about performance, but is also about looking good! For the fashion conscious amongst you, the FSE Robline cordage is available in a wealth of attractive colours.

With a large array of sizes and colours available, we are extremely excited to tell you that Upffront.com will be supplying the entire range. Whilst other stockists provide only a fraction of the available colours and diameters, Upffront.com will be a haven for all FSE Robline configurations.

Have you been looking for yachting ropes that are stylish, easy to use and with top-flight functionality?
