    Lol dude. I'm loving your name.

    I have spliced all sorts of little lines for my boats and spliced a set of 10 speedline slings out of it. And odds and ends... my footloop for my hand ascender is made of it.
    In my experience, it is really tough stuff.

    I just decided to give the treestuff mystery bag a try, and ended up with 3 largeish ropes -- Two I'm pretty sure on my ID, one is a real "mystery":

    Rope 1: Looks to be 5/8 or 3/4" Tenex TEC -- it's a bit "squared" so it's difficult to measure. Red color looks like what treestuff sells as 5/8", but it measures more like 3/4"

    Rope 2: Double braid, helpfully has a little plastic ribbon identifying it as coming from Atlantic Braids. Looks to be 5/8" or 3/4" Titan-Braid (http://atlanticbraids.com/product/titan-braid-coated/)

    Rope 3: ???? Very soft and flexible 8-strand. All-white, but one of the strands has a green and a black tracer hidden inside it. Best guess is 3/4" Yale Nylon Brait (http://www.yalecordage.com/custom-and-specialty-ropes/plaited-8-strand/nylon-brait) -- any ideas on this one / what it might be useful for??

    Also -- any tips on measuring rope diameter?

    Give that 8 strand to a buddy with a 4x4 that knows how to tie a knot, if it's long enough to tow with.

    I got some and read about splicing it. Nope. It's terrible stuff for everything I tried to do with it.
