Some Tow Line Comparison Notes between Sea Tec and Dynamic Pro
- In 35’, both Dynamic Pro and Sea Tec use the H2prO Line
- Dynamic Pro 50’ version uses a lighter weight, and more dynamic polypropylene and it not available in the Sea Tec.
- Both are approximately the same physical size around the body / waist, however the Dynamic unfurl to almost flat, proving little in-water friction / drag (drogueing) whereas the Sea Tec will “bucket” and potentially “drogue” the victim in a situation where the towing paddler jettisons the victim.
- While paddling, the Dynamic is best re-stuffed / repacked while sitting and atop a spray skirt as table.
- The Sea Tec has a pouch / sack in which to re pack the rope while on water and thus suitable for not only sea kayaking, but also stand up paddle boarding.
