      • Rescue Rope 3/8"

        Q:

        Is this rope braided with a hollow core so that it can be tucked back inside itself to form a loop rather than tying a knot in the end?

          Gary, made perimeter rope around my raft, that was a year ago. Just dug it
          out. It does have a core. I knotted it and melted the core to seal it off.
          Nice tight braid over core.

          No, it has a solid core. I don't think you could make that type of loop with it.

          A:

          It's a kernmantle rope so there is an inner core like a climbing rope...it's not hollow. I suppose, if you knew what you were doing, that you could create a braided or 'knotless' loop in the end.

        Q:

        How many feet should I buy to use as an anchor for an NRS fishing frame?

          A:

          Well, that depends on how swift the water is, the bottom composition and the anchoring system is. An easy start would be 3 to 1. 3 times the max depth you expect to anchor in. I.e. if you plan on anchoring in a max depth of 10' have 30' ready to go. That ratio is variable, but 3:1 is a good start.

          A:

          I live in NW Montana and most rivers are fairly shallow, rare to have pools deeper than 10' so for me 20-30' max. Seems like 10' more than your deepest pools is a good rule of thumb.
          Hope that helps

          A:

          That depends somewhat on the depth of the water you're anchoring in and the speed of the current. Most folks think you should have at least 4 times the length of rope as the depth of water where you drop anchor.

          Yes, Jim, this is the rope we recommend. Sorry for the confusion. We recently adopted a new software system that necessitated new item numbers and we haven't caught all the old references. Thanks for pointing it out.

        Q:

        Hi!
        Just want to confirm that this is a solid braid, and does not have a non-polypropylene core.
        Also that it floats (I assume it does, but you did not specify).
        Thanks.

          A:

          Yes, rope is solid polypropylene including the core. (It melts nicely to prevent unraveling). It does float. I use this rope for painters on my canoes and the canoes that I outfit for others. I build spray covers for canoes and usually include painters (lining ropes) with the packages that I build. It’s a great product and wears very well. Hope this helps.

          A:

          Absolutely the rope does float. in fact all the applications we use it for require floating rope as far as the core is concerned I wouldn't want state what it is I guess the supplier/manufacturer should be asked about that matter. Hope this is somewhat helpful.

          I don't have it in front of me, but I believe it is a solid braid and is
          floating. I used it for painters on my river tripping canoe and have been
          happy with it.

          Yep, it's 100% polypropylene. And it floats. We use it in our rescue throw bags.

          A:

          Yes it floats. It is of kernmantle contruction and not a solid braid. It has a core (the kern) which is polyproplyene and a sheath of braided polypropylene (the mantle).
