Camouflaged double-braid climbing line at 11.4mm size from the Samson. This is an excellent climbing line that will work with your favorite hitch cords and climbing hardware, but allows you to keep a low profile in the tree. Perfect for rec climbs, hunting, canopy research, and any other climbing where high visibility of the line is not desirable.

Customer Reviews

Rated: Good Review by: Phill

“Good, but not a new favorite. It is a bit stiffer than Velocity and Vortex. The cover is tighter and that makes eye splicing more difficult than those other two ropes. The final bury operation on my first eye splice never got the crossover buried; had to cut that loop off. Second try: tapered the cover and core more aggressively than normal and still had to use a 5:1 on the pull to get the final bury. Had to use a wire fid to pull the core through the cover on the second bury: stepping down to a 5/16" fid was still not enough. Feels like the core is too loose and the cover is too tight.”

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.

Samson Predator meets ANSI Z133-2012 standards, so long as the user has been trained in the use of smaller diameter lines.

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