19×7 Containing 19 strands, each strand is made up of 7 wires. It is manufactured
by covering an inner rope of 7×7 left lang lay construction with
12 strands in right regular lay. (The rotation-resistant property
that characterizes this highly specialized construction is a
result of the counter torques developed by the two layers.) When
the steel wire core strand is replaced by a fiber core, the description
becomes 18×7.
