Steel-Core Fliplines

Steel-core fliplines are made with braided arborist rope over steel cable. This gives a steel-core flipline extra rigidity, making it easier to flip up the tree - especially on larger stems. A running chainsaw will easily sever a steel-core flipline; and they should not be considered chainsaw-proof. Caution must always be used in the tree.

Steel-core fliplines are available in diameters from 7/16" to 3/4". Larger diameters can be easier to grip but also add to the weight and bulk of your climbing kit. These fliplines are also available here in our complete flipline kits.

The 3/16” steel aircraft cable in the center of Yale fliplines is actually hand spliced using the superior Flemish Eye technique to form the eyes; resulting in higher strength and less wear fatigue. The synthetic rope cover is held securely in place with a press fitting. An auto locking steel clip is attached to a steel thimble at the lead end. Yale fliplines are a local favorite for their strength, durability, and the comfortable, full grip that they provide.

Maxi-Flip Sport is the lightest wire-core flipline on the market. In addition to shaving off 25% of the weight, the Maxi-Flip Sport lanyards have a 16-strand cover instead of a 12, which makes them more abrasion resistant due to the tighter weave and allows mechanical adjusters to slide more easily because of the smoother surface. They also come with a new style of aluminum snap made by ISC, which shaves weight without being harder to open. The Sport has the same great Flemish eye-splice in the 7/32” cable that prevents flex fatigue and extends life over to other fliplines swaged (crimped) eyes.
