He just got a new shippment of rope in from samson so look through his inventory. Great guy to do business with. Ive bought 9 ropes from him inthe last 2 weeks, getting ready for high inflation.............
Well I just bought a 100' of 5/8s Stable Braid. For the buy it now price of 75.00.
Sent him a note asking about him covering shipping. Hoping he will do it.
With 18.00 for shipping added its not what I would call a fantastic deal.
this is the first thing ever that I have purchased off of ebay.
Carl when you dealt with this fella before did you place a bid or give his asking price? This is new to me.
I see he's got a piece of 3/4" x 150' on there. The description says it is Stable Braid, but the line in the picture is actually Arbor Plex. He says avg strength is 19,000, but 3/4 Arbor Plex is actually 12,000. If it really was 3/4"
Stable Braid, it would be 20,400 not 19,000. He's got another piece on there called "Samson 7/8" x 150' Braided Nylon Bull Line", with again a pic of Arbor Plex next to it. Arbor Plex is not made of Nylon and doesn't come in a 7/8" diameter (3/4" is max). Again, he says strength is 19,000 lbs. Either this guy knows absolutely nothing about rope or he is intentionally misleading people to make the line seem stronger than it really is. Yikes!
I'll admit I'm tempted by his prices. Brendon - when you received your order, was it the one in the picture or the one in the description? Did you know before you received it which one it would be? I know I'd be pretty pissed if I thought I was buying Stable Braid and got Arbor Plex instead.
Some of his pictures I have purchase showed a similar line, but it mighta said "this rope is orange, not white as in the picture". I always e-mail him first though, just making sure I'm getting what I want plus the free-shipping. Putting up Arbor PLex for Stable Braid is a little wacky though.
My main reason for that line is to help stabilize a storm damaged or busted up big limb or tree while I work on it.
But its still long enough for blocking down chunks on a lot of trees around here that would need a rope that strong.
Also after I learn to splice I will probably make some slings out of it & buy a longer hank of 3/4.
Dam, I just bought more chit from the man. Its worse than a crack habit
I dont think I want to see my total
1st time Ive bought anything off ebay. It's addictive
Dam you Carl!!
