One of the first lines ever designed specifically for arborists, Arbor-Plex 1/2” remains one of the most economical ropes on the market. In the 1/2” diameter, has a breaking strength of 6,000 lb. and is rated as a climbing line. At 6.8 lb. per 100 ft., Arbor-Plex is one of the lightest climbing lines we sell. Arbor-Plex is a 12 strand single braid rope with a polyester cover surrounding polyolefin fibers in the center, making it abrasion resistant as well as lightweight. It is a great choice for wet climates where mildew and rot can be a problem. Arbor-Plex is Non-Spliceable. Click on a picture for a larger image. Arbor-plex is also available in larger diameters for use as a rigging line. See Arbor-Plex rigging line here.

“Strength is great, not real great for a Petzl zig zag. After 15-20 uses the rope is squarish under load and does not feed well on the descent. Ascenders work fine on it. ”
Stiff-walled, reinforced rope bags, are one of the best ways to protect your climbing and rigging lines and deploy them quickly. A rope bag will keep your line from tangling on twigs and sticks. Features sturdy, reinforced handles and drawstring closure to keep out debris. This is our most popular rope bag. Medium rope bag fits 150' of 1/2" rope.
