We compared ropes on the market and found deficiencies in many of them. So we developed our own ropes! Don't believe us... see our YouTube video HERE.
Problems we saw with some name brand ropes:
- Improperly protected splice causing friction (eventual failure)
- Lack of twisting on internal strands
- Weak out layer
- Poorly dipped (or completely not dipped) eyes.
We solved ALL these problems! Please see YouTube video mentioned above for reference. We are using a modified version of the rope at 9:30 mark.
Plus we added reflective strands to make our rope visible for nightime recoveries.
And yes! We tested our ropes for actual stretch. You will find many ropes don't stretch as advertised due to improper twisting of internal nylon. Video's above show stretch of a 20' rope. You should expect more stretch on a 30' rope.
