Fantastic for my purposes., April 10, 2016 By Michael Cast (kentucky) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: SGT KNOTS 1/4″, 3/8″, 5/8″ Utility Rope Made in USA – Several Colors & Lengths Though this is not an expensive static rope, and it’s not made ESPECIALLY for climbing, I still think it’s awesome. Some people can’t afford the expensive quality climbing ropes, to just be used a couple of times a year. Especially if your not doing serious repelling; as I don’t plan on doing vertical stuff anyway. This rope was bought to descend the sides of steep inclines in the treacherous, karst topography of the Kentucky woods. The slopes aren’t steep enough to warrant a full rig, but it is certainly waaaay too steep to just stroll or rabbit hop down. These hills will send you rolling and cracking bone down the slope. No, the leaf and moss covered limestone will put you on your butt, and from there, you just get FASTER. I would say the pitch averages about sixty degrees or more. A bit steeper that a twelve/twelve (or a forty five degree angle. Seriously, the rope is super stiff enough and thick enough, that I would not hesitate to swing from it if I had to, and I think it would handle the weight and do a very decent job of it. And the delivery was fast, and the rope was packed in a tightly sealed plastic bag. This is not a dry rotted or old musty rope that someone’s kept in a hot or damp warehouse. It is nice and smooth, and I think it will help eliminate at least a bit of rope burn that I always got from using course woven rope. It is not like paracord at all. It makes the 550 paracord look like a shoe string. Even thicker than the big gauge paracord. I looked at several ropes and read a lot of numbers, but the tensile strength on this rope is way up there. But make sure you check that out. Besides, a lot of climbing gear is measured in the metric system. BUT, I do know that the rope would probably hold a half a dozen people easily. Oh, and it does not have much stretch to it AT ALL! Very very pleased!

This review is from: SGT KNOTS 1/4″, 3/8″, 5/8″ Utility Rope Made in USA – Several Colors & Lengths This is a lot of good rope for the price. Used it to hang a swing and it works great. There is a little stretch to it, but not much, and is easily strong enough for the adult swing that I hung.

This review is from: SGT KNOTS 1/4″, 3/8″, 5/8″ Utility Rope Made in USA – Several Colors & Lengths Good quality rope at a reasonable price. My only gripe was my own fault; I didn’t realize it was a nylon core with a poly sheathing, I believed it to be poly throughout. As a consequence, this rope is a nightmare to fuse. You have to cut it, peel back the sheathing, heat the cores, stick them together, replace the sheathing, then if you want the seamless look I’m using this rope for, you have to stretch the sheathing and iron it down so that the white cores don’t show. If you’re climbing, pulling, or camping, this rope is great. If you’re using it to make things, look for a solid poly rope.
