For example, “7x19” means the rope has seven (7) strands, with 19 wires in each strand. 7x19 is the most flexible aircraft cable construction. 7x19 is approximately twice as flexible as 7x7 construction. Aircraft cable is rated by its nominal break strength.I am not sure what 7x19 stainless cable is. This is what I bought from Amazon. It is not very flexible. Before using this on my bait caster reel, I am just going to see how the reel retrieval/deployment works using my regular Capillary Throw Line. I will keep the drag set so that my rope should not come “tumbling down” once it gets past the Friction Saver. We will put up an accessory line for backup if this fishing reel system should fail.

Tell that to the squirrel that ate though the outer sheath and insulators to bare copper on a run of 14/2 in my attic and tripped a breaker.To prevent rodent chewing handle your cordage with gloves on. Rodents are not interested in chewing syntheic fibers, they are interested in the salts transmitted from sweat on your hands to the cordage. They are very practical and efficient and do things for a reason ;-)
Exceptions to every rule. Although... just because we don’t know why doesn’t mean there isn’t a reason why ;-)Tell that to the squirrel that ate though the outer sheath and insulators to bare copper on a run of 14/2 in my attic and tripped a breaker.
How that sucker survived that is beyond me but I can tell you that it wasn't very practical..
We “invented” our chain Friction Saver using a thick rubber hose collar around a substantial chain with a stainless steel ring shackled (tied off with wire) to the chain.Don't think I saw it mentioned, but what sort of friction saver are you leaving in the tree? Cable is far more abrasive than any textile. Pulling it 2 or 3 times a week is going to slice through a lot of things in short order.
