Soft Poly hand hand line is easy on the hands. 5/8" diameter has a tensile strength rated at 2,250 lbs.
At a 5% safety factor, that's a safe working load of 112 lbs. Rule of thumb is if the load it too heavy to lift without a mechanical advantage, then you should be using a stronger rope to do it.
5/8" rope fits the split-side pulleys which are also offered in this category. Ropes are cut with a hot-knife for a smooth ravel-free end.
You can order the rope in any continuous length. If you want a color other than black, tell us in the "ordering options" box on "view cart" page. Although we may not be able match the color you want, we will contact you with close options.
