    just got my second bag of rope from ts but this time I'm having a hard time identifying 2 of them. They are both 3/8ths 12 strand hollow braid. I think the green one might be amsteel. The orange one is throwing me off with the red tracer. Hoping to find out the breaking strength so I can decide what to make.

    I'm willing to bet that they're Spiderline. It's color coded pulling line for the utility industry. Both colors pictured are 100% polyester.

    After some google searching I can't seem to find anything on spiderline that resembles this. Everything I found about spiderline seems to show double braid. Would theses be from the usual manufacturers that tree stuff carries, or might this come from someone else?

    Ended up stumbling on your last post about this too, thanks for the help and I will have to remember the cut and float tests next time.

    Thank you!

    I got 300' of that in orange!
    I have just been sure that it is "some sort of coated hollow braid"

    This is the freshest rope ID thread.
    Somehow I can't find the other bag-o-rope threads... anyhow, I have decided today that the orange is probably half inch polydyne (in the color that they list for 5/8), but the others are all throwing me off.
    All of them are double braid construction. The black 9/16 has a really tight outer braid.
    Any guesses? I think I've looked at every line on TS.

    Black is Kernmaster, and the green looks like 3/8" Sta-Set and the white looks like Sta-Set as well.

    So I checked out Sta-Set. It's close to both of them, but I think it is different unless they have changed the pattern at some point. The flecks are closer together in mine, and there are no red flecks. You can see the end of the rope in this picture, and there isn't a red core. Any other guesses?

    I have a chunk of the green/red core stuff too. It is more like 11.7 or 12.7mm stuff. Really tight cover, I can't split it to extract the core to splice. I got a bunch that the. Core was.not is so it was basically worthless. That happens with a bag o rope.

    That big chunk is only 10 feet long... it will either end up being a handrail or something else decorarive. It's too short to even splice one eye.
    I was just hoping to make yet another lanyard/rigging deadeye/base anchor sling or anything else from that green stuff. If not, I'll live. This bag had 100ft of beeline, so I scored anyway.

    What size beeline? My green stuff would make a perfect lanyard.

    I mean, not really. Certainly not for any kind of deal.
    Hitch cord is the best stuff to get in a bagorope. I've got a couple of climbers around who are always making stuff or losing stuff or something.

    No problem. Thought I'd ask.

    I just got a bag of rope and am unsure of a few. The orange seems to be 11.8-12mm

    I have the white with green tracers too. Maybe someone will help us both. Here is my photo. [​IMG]

    The white/green looks like it might be Yale Double Esterlon?? See yalecordage.com.

    Could the green one be like a big Samson ice tail? I got some too and would like to know.

    I also got a good amount of this rope. Other than to practice splicing, have you come up with any uses? I use it for a non-life support 3-1 prussik.
