Innovation, reliability, and exceptional performance are what sailors are looking for when they choose their ropes. These attributes have also been key priorities of FSE Robline: the leading manufacturer of marine ropes. The company continually strives to improve the service level that it provides to its customers. Therefore it launched its interactive FSE Robline app for the iPad which is now available for free download in the Apple App Store. It’s truly a must-have for every boater!
The heart of the app is the Rope Selector, which offers customers three excellent tools to select the right rope to meet their needs. These tools which service every boat type and sailing application are the Racing.Tool.Box, the Rope Guide and the OneDesign tool. The app also includes splicing instructions for each kind of braiding, the online catalogue with an overview of all FSE Robline products, and some interesting special features which provide additional support for sailors.
The Rope Guide section allows every sailor to find the right rope for his needs. The sailor starts the search by first specifying his boat length followed by his sailing type (Performance, Racing, Cruising, Dinghy, etc.) and the desired field of application (Main sheet, Spi sheet, Docklines, etc.). Within seconds, FSE Robline recommends the right products matching the criteria, which the customer can order right away per e-mail. This way, all it takes is a few clicks for sailors to find the ideal rope for their needs.
Along the lines of “You request it, we play it!” customers can create their personalized rope by choosing their favorite cover and core from FSE Robline’s range of Racing products. Then, FSE Robline will braid the ropes so as to meet the required criteria. This way, they will feature all the right technical specifications for the sailor’s desired parameters such as breaking strength, stretch and creep behavior, abrasion characteristics, UV resistance and weight. The Racing.Tool.Box range incorporates only premium quality fibers and raw materials that allow the production of ultimate high-end marine ropes and custom-tailored solutions.
One Design is specially made for sailors of One Design yachts. Sorted by boat type, the tool offers the right lines for all fields of application on the boat – including the exact length and diameter needed according to the category regulations. The two choices available are the High-end Racing kit and the Performance kit.
The Splicing instructions offered in the app are a very useful tool for every sailor. The easy step by step explanation guides through four different kinds of termination from Eye Splice to High-Tech-Splice. In addition, the app includes a worldwide weather and wind forecast as well as the FSE online catalogue and a QR code reader.
