When it comes to rigging, their flagship product is Double Esterlon. It's a solid double braid polyester rigging rope most popular in 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" diameters. It's very popular with our arborist customers for use as a lowering rope (aka bull rope). It's also used by our utility customers for pulling or hoisting, and in larger diameters it's found on digger derrick trucks in use as a winch line (aka whip line).
For climbing lines, they also have some really popular options. One is their 7/16" (11.7mm) Blue Moon
, which is a 24-strand, double braid rope with the exclusive "tite braid" cover that eliminates milking and runs really smoothly through devices. A slightly larger option is their 1/2" XTC Fire
. It has a traditional 16-strand construction, with a firm and tight feel. It stays round, is resistant to snags and is quite visible due to its awesome color scheme!
