Samson's Velocity is one of the lightest climbing line we sell. This 7/16" premium arborist line was developed by Samson specifically for tree care professionals who need quick and easy access to the tops of trees without being weighed down. Velocity has a unique construction, being a 24 strand spliceable double braid. It maintains a spliced strength of 6,000 lb. Right out of the bag this rope has a broken in feel, is very flexible and runs well through hardware. This is the best climbing line for the weight-conscious arborist. Available in “Cool” (Green/Blue/White) or “Hot” (Orange/Red/White.)

Quick Overview: 7/16” diameter, 6,000 ABS, 5.6 lb per 100’.

Customer Reviews

Rated: Excellent Review by: Ryan (owner/manager)

“I originally purchased some Arbormaster Hawkeye to work with my Petzl Zig Zag; however, even though the Petzl states that it'll run that size rope... it doesn't. I wrote WesSpur and NGD recommended I try this rope out. I couldn't be more pleased. I have run this on a number of North Carolina Pines and this rope runs SMOOTHLY through the Petzl. I highly recommend this rope for any mechanical device. This will now be my go-to rope for all future climbing! Thanks WesSpur for both the recommendation and the fast product delivery!”

Safety & Technical Information

Samson Velocity Cool 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 Velocity Cool 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.
