Any feedback on the Marlow rope lineup? I have a local distributor for them here in BC and need to replace a half dozen worn out ropes.
I have the marlow Vega, great rope for SRS, yeah that maple leaf rope place is way overly expensive ! $1143 for a 600’ spool of tachyon, no thanksAny feedback on the Marlow rope lineup? I have a local distributor for them here in BC and need to replace a half dozen worn out ropes.
The Vega can be spliced, I just watched their demonstration video on how to do an eye.The Vega had my interest until I found out it can't be spliced. I like having an eyesplice in my lines, it gives me more options. Then again, the name reminds me of a crappy Chevy.
When I asked wesspur about I was told the parallel core prevented both hand and sewn splicing on this rope. Too bad because I like the tensile strength and low elongation. Any Marlow reps out there care to send a sample to me to test?Checking out the Vega splicing instructions, I noticed that it is very similar to the Marlowbraid splice, except this one appears to have the tail pass through itself as it's buried. If it does, where is the point it passes through itself?
Wesspur doesn't splice it, nor did they the Aeris that they used to carry. I read somewhere that they couldn't get consistent results.
But Honeybros does have spliced eyes.
