Price:  $4.95

The engineered design of all of our rope is to maximize strength while providing excellent flexibility and handling while being resistant to harsh outdoor environments.  Our rope serves many applications and has special qualifications for use with antennas (wire or otherwise), tower and mast support, hauling, marine, banners, and signs. Other uses include shade sail support, tarping, and archers' bow string follower line. Also perfect for vertical structures such as scaffolding or tree limb control.

High breaking strength: Our ropes are made in USA mills and have the highest breaking strengths available in comparable diameters than our competitors.  Why pay for lower strength when you can get comparable rope that is much stronger?

Polyester vs. Dacron™, what is the difference?  Dacron™ is a registered trademark of the DuPont corporation.  Dacron™ is also double braided polyester rope (just like ours), but due to the trademarked name, it commands a higher selling price.  All of our rope is also double braided polyester.

Laughing at the elements:  All our rope is resistant to UV light, mildew, rot, and stretch (unlike nylon which does stretch).  It also has a very low coefficient of friction (it is somewhat slippery and can glide over tree limbs, etc. without digging in or sawing through.)
