Double-braid rope is the most commonly used rope for rigging trees because of its high strength and low stretch. The name describes this rope’s construction, 2 ropes in one. The inner core is protected by a tightly woven outer jacket, creating a very strong, flexible line with low stretch characteristics. In the final stage of manufacturing, Stable Braid ropes are dip-coated in a bath of liquid Samthane that dries into an abrasion-resistant shell. This coating does wear over time, but adds a great deal of life to the rope that it protects.
