Product Description

Double Esterlon is a double braid rope constructed of high tenacity 1W81 polyester fiber, which has a unique cordage finish. This premium yarn, with its extraordinary lubricity and Yale's careful attention to converting machinery setup, yields the highest strength double braid polyester available. By all means, this is a flagship product, one of the most tried and true ropes we sell. Double Esterlon has low stretch, high strength, excellent wear life, dielectric strength and is completely spliceable delivering the cataloged strengths when spliced properly. It is identified by two green strands braided into the cover structure, and all of our stock sizes include an optional Maxijacket urethane coating to further enhance the ropes wear resistance (this is what gives the rope its main body color).

Specific Gravity: 1.38

from Donelson, TN asked:
May 26, 2020

Can this rope with the urethane coating be used as a fall arrest rope, in conjunction with a rope grab type of fall protection device?

1 Answer
The rope is certainly strong enough, however it is really designed as a rigging rope, and not a fall protection rope. Additionally, we would recommend you check with the manufacturer of your particular device to see what restrictions/limitations they have re: rope selection.

from Chico, CA asked:
August 4, 2019
Can this rope be ordered with a thimble on one end? If so, how much does the thimble reduce the rope's breaking strength?
1 Answer
Yes, we can splice this rope with a thimble, and it will not reduce the Breaking Strength. Please see the links below for the splicing fee, and two different thimble options.

Better than I Expected
December 25, 2020
I have watched my husband struggle with heavy chains when using his tractor to pull a felled tree one other project to a different place on our property. Also, I watched a professional arborist take down a 120 tree using the type of rigging I purchased for my husband. The arborist said this rigging should be sufficient for any job my husband would want to accomplish without using the heavy chains. Gave this to my husband as a Christmas gift and he is thrilled to have a light weight alternative to the chains. I highly recommend Westech Rigging Supply.
