Clara Premium has been over 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.
Each of the three strands has 5 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.
This is a true 5,5mm (0.20in), so you might take it to be less as most rope is about 10% over the nominal size to allow for stretch and so as not to be under specification.
It's sweet-smelling due to eco-friendly production methods and wet treating is entirely pointless as it is perfect right off the reel.
