New Yale Imori is a lightweight rope that feels closer to a 1/2” line. Imori's unique textured strands give it a great hand that improves grip and makes this a rope like no other.
Yale Cordage has incorporated a new type of taslanized (textured) fiber into the rope structure which provides bulk, and therefore an enhanced grip for better ergonomics. This fiber is blended with a 100% solution dyed filament polyester into the construction. This unique blend allows the fibers to be exposed on both the outer sheath and also on the inside of the sheath providing more friction to the inner core which helps to minimize excessive elongation while providing superior unsurpassed grip for the climber.
Quick Overview: 15/32” diameter, 6,200 ABS, 6.5 lb per 100’.

This great article at Yale Rope's website explains the how the ability of a rope to absorb impact is affected by the elasticity of the rope. Breaking strength is not the only important factor in determining if a rope is right for the job. Dynamic Energy in Arborist Ropes
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.
Yale Imori rope meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards.
The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
