Breaking Strength

Product Description

A true jack-of-all-trades rope, our Double Braid Solid Colors are perfect for your next adventure

1/2" Nylon Double Braid Rope for boats, crafts, or general use. 1/2" is typically used with boats up to 25-30 feet. Premium double braided nylon that is ultra strong with a higher tensile strength than other dock line materials. By design, it has an ideal combination of decreased stretch and increased shock absorption in addition to being salt water, oil and rot resistant. Soft & supple, double braided nylon boat ropes that are easy on your boat finish and comfortable to handle. Nylon ropes will lose about 10% of their strength when wet and will elongate considerably more. They will regain their strength when properly dried. Excellent shock absorbency for smooth docking.

PRO TIP: Combine with 5/8"E-Z-TY Rope Clamps or add Whipping to either ends.

Rope Variability: Diameter in the rope industry will always vary as no two ropes will ever measure the same, especially if they are different braid types, different manufacturers, materials. Diameter is a range in the industry and will always have variations due to Cordage Institute specifications. We encourage purchasing a sample length for testing purposes.

*Please note: Maximum spool size is 300'. The rope(s) pictured are shown in a Double Figure 8 Knot. When purchased, these ropes will arrive in straight pieces unless custom splicing is added during checkout.

    I bought this rope to use as a taglines for controlling loads during rigging and hoisting operations. The material and diameter make it excellent for grasping with leather gloves without being overly stiff. It has negligible stretch, which makes it very responsive for load control - no delay in inputs and rebound caused by stretch, as found in cheap hardware store rope. The bright color keeps it from being mistaken (and cut up) for the general purpose rope around the worksite. I added a section of heat shrink tubing to each end for labeling, 25' tagline, without creating a snagging hazard.

    I bought purple rope to use for reins for my horse's new amethyst bridle. It looks great. Quick service, great rope.
