It is far more economical to use Ropecoat that to replace the whole rope.
Racing yachts halyards and spinnaker braces often have a good portion of the outer cover removed to reduce weight, leaving the fibre core of the braided rope exposed and vulnerable. Rope core is the part that provides most of the strength to the rope and the cover is what protects the core. When the core is exposed it can often snag on sharp objects and deteriorating more rapidly from UV rays.
