11.8mm (15/32”) • 24-strand • 8,000 lb ABS • 3% elongation at 10% ABS • 6.5 lb per 100' • spliceable

Voyager fits the sweet spot in the premium V-Series climbing lines from Samson. At 11.8mm, it is larger than Velocity and smaller than Vortex - perfect for the newest climbing devices. Great handling with hardware & prusiks.

Voyager is an 11.8mm 24-stand double braid climbing line, and the newest member of Samson's V-Series family of ropes. Situated between Velocity (11mm) and Vortex (12.7mm) in diameter, it was designed from the ground up to work with both existing mechanical systems and hardware as well as hardware that is currently being developed. With Velocity and Vortex both having widespread success in their respective diameter classes, Voyager now aims to fill the gap between them and future-proof Samson's climbing rope lineup. As with Velocity and Vortex, a nylon and polyester construction gives the rope low elongation with great abrasion resistance.

Voyager, like the rest of Samson's climbing and rigging lines, was also designed with splicing in mind. The line can be spliced using a class-1 double braid splicing technique, with an average spliced break strength of 8,000 lbs!”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Tree Works

“I'm using it with my hitch climber very smooth. Feels good in my hands.”

Rated: Good Review by: Shawn / Ogden Contracting

“I haven't gotten to use the new voyager rope very much but it does seem like good stuff. I use it ddrt with a Petzl Zigzag and it works great!”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Nick Works

“This is my favorite rope diameter. Not too big or small. I also like the tighter weave than vortex. I will be purchasing more of this rope.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Certifed Arborist/Ruddell Tree Service

“I'm using this line with a Petzl Zigzag. It works flawlessly. Voyager rope is the most supple rope I can ever remember handling in the last 30 years of climbing. It is easy to tie. The only thing I would like is different colors. I think this color tends to dissaper in the canopy.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Colorado Tree Services

“Great feel, works great with the Petzl Zig Zag and has great grip when you need to climb back up.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Brackett's Crossing

“I really liked the new voyager rope. Extremely light weight and very easy to work with, knots well and runs through hitches and devices well, and a good visible color scheme in the tree. So far, I am likeling better than the other ropes that I've used and would recommend it and buy it again.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Phill

“A winner. First job out of the box on a single rope Hitch Hiker/8mm UltraTech, 2 CMI Expedition hand ascenders and a CMI foot ascender: everything performed perfectly. The rope has an excellent limited stretch and stayed firm and round through the equipment. It is brighter than Velocity Cool and visibility is very good. Good hand. Good knots. Honestly, it is just a bit coarser than the other V-series lines: it doesn't quite have that silky sexy smooth feel of Velocity but the larger diameter is easier to handle. The 11.8mm size is good.

“Good rope. Kudos to Iron Street. Nice work. ”

Safety & Technical Information

Samson Voyager Splicing Instructions

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 Voyager rope 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.
