Looking for a high-performance arborist climbing line with high strength and great feel? Samson ArborMaster® is for you. No other rope we stock has the same combination of strength, performance, and durability and comes in your choice of 4 color patterns.

ArborMaster® is one of our best-selling 16-strand climbing lines. This rope is an excellent balance of high strength (6,500 lb. spliced) and low weight (7.7 lb. per 100'). ArborMaster® is a 16-strand, single-braid, 1/2” diameter rope. ArborMaster® works well with friction hitches such as the Tautline and Blake’s hitch, and is supple and handles well for all manner of arborist's knots.

Samson ArborMaster® is made from polyester with a nylon core and is highly resistant to abrasion with very low stretch.

Quick Overview: 1/2” diameter, 6,500 ABS, 7.7 lb per 100’.

Customer Reviews

Rated: Excellent Review by: Matthew

“Awesome rope. Very strong and does a great job resisting abrasion. Very good rope for knots, and smooth to climb on. ”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Joshua Rugg

“This rope has by far been one of the best investments I have made to my arsenal of climbing gear. It is very strong, resists abrasion well and yet soft on your hands. When choosing to upgrade to a new rope, don't hesitate and pick yourself up a hank of ArborMaster. ”

ANSI Z133-2012

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboriculutral operations.

Arborist climbing lines are required to have a minimum breaking strength of 5,400 lb (24 kN) when new, and should be no smaller than 1/2” (12.7mm) unless the employee has been trained in the use of smaller line (down to 7/16” / 11mm), and the line's working elongation should not exceed 7% at 540 lb load.

ArborMaster® rope meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards.

The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
