Have any of you used Stable Braid with out the coating? Seems to me it might not be as durable. Just recieved 150' of it. I will make use of it regardless.
I seriously dislike Super Braid from Wall Rope.
As far as I know, NER doesn't make a product by the name of "Super Braid."
You make a good point, no reference to it on the NE site. If you look at Sherrills, either website or catalog, you'll find it under rigging ropes.
It's a coated, two carrier, double braid. It's stiff, doesn't make pretty knots but they hold great. You can natural crotch all day with it and it won't pick or glaze.
I bought a 200' spool at TCIA from Sherrills; it was in a sealed New England box on a New England Spool. I wonder if its a Sherrills exclusive kinda like PI.
From my findings, the stiffness leads to some pretty heavy reduction in the strength of the rope, putting it slightly weaker than Saftey Pro 12, or around 6klbs of strength in a bowline.
What I had meant was to not run it though any natural crotches and you should be fine (thats what having a few beers and posting will do to ya). Even using it as a friction saver or a sling would work too. You could always make use of a gallon of maxi jacket if you felt spunky.
Carl, I thought Wall Rope went out of business?
