How strong are the ropes?

All of our ropes have been tested and certified and exceed Cordage Institute Standards. Below are the breaking strengths:

  3/8" Diameter   1/2" Diameter   5/8" Diameter   

Line only:  

1,390 lbs. 2,312 lbs. 3,265 lbs.

1,200 lbs. 2,100 lbs. 2,250 lbs.

 

Are the ropes soft?

Yes. The rope is made of solid braid polypropylene so it does not absorb moisture. This is also why our ropes float. Absorption of moisture will cause ropes to become dry and brittle. Because our ropes repel moisture they will remain soft.

How many letters can I fit on the tag?

16 characters, including spaces. The more characters you use, the smaller the letters must become to fit them on the label.

Can you embroider both sides of the rope?

No, we are only able to embroider one side.

Can I use a different color thread?

We always use white thread on black webbing. This has proven to be the easiest to read.
