Dead-eye slings are a more traditional sling compared to Whoopie Slings
and Loopie Slings
. They are used for tying off Port-A-Wraps
or for hanging Rigging Blocks
in trees...either way, they are used for rigging. That means the rope needs to be tough and the splice needs to be dependable. Our dead-eye slings are made from Pelican's Matador Bull Rope
, a premium double braid rigging line made from polyester and nylon right here in the U.S.A. Choose from three popular rope diameters. All eyes are buffered with a chafe sleeve while the other end is cut clean then sealed. This tough rope can take a shock load (but you should always avoid shock loads, whenever possible). Urethane coated for maximum abrasion protection.
