i bought this rope to use with my new tree steps. it works great because it will tighten up on itself due to it being hollow. I took the ends and pushed them through to the center of the rope for a short distance and then pushed the ends out to form a loop on each end. This provided a Chinese handcuffs-type grip that I wanted to wrap around the tree and hook and hold my tree steps secure and tight.
how it is
very course fibers however has a very lose weave so rope can snag but is still abrasion resistant. anticipate flat roping because of the lose hollow braid coming off the spool. very slick. overall good rope.
Just what I was looking for to attach climbing steps to trees to get to my hunting treestand. Very strong, easily supports my 220lbs with no stretch and very easy to splice.
Quality product! Quality sevice!
Product came as described in the time frame specified. What more can anyone ask for. It is inexpensive black poly rope and worked well for it's intended use.
Not what I was looking for
I needed this rope for embellishment on a costume I was making. I did research on the material and was lead to believe that polypropylene was a soft, flexible rope. This rope feels as if it where made of plastic rather than fabric fibers. It is way too stiff and will not function for what I need it for at all. Now there is not enough time before the event for me to find a suitable replacement. It was a serious disappointment as now I am not going to be able to wear the costume.
If you need this rope for securing a boat or something along those lines I'm sure this rope works just fine. It just was not what I was in the market for.
