Tossa Lite Natural 6mm x 8m, sets from
This is a new batch that came in as Tossa Lite 6mm but it is very different from previous batches. The fibre is higher quality being more golden with a slight sheen. It is not quite as clean as the standard Tossa but the odd dark fibres are soft and easily removed. It is also a lower yarn count (6 vs 13 double yarns) which makes it less smooth. However, it is more flexible untreated than wet treated Tossa which means all you need to do is oil and singe off and it's ready to use. You can wet treat it but I don't bother. It's around 25% lighter than Tossa at around 16g per metre so it handles beautifully.
The double yarn contruction means that it is stable and durable even with rough treatment. The lay (twist) is tighter than the earlier batches of Lite so the rope has more body and the plies are less likely to open up.
If you want and everyday rope that needs minimal preparation, ties beautifully, will last and doesn't cost a fortune, this is it! Check out the close ups and video and see for yourself.
