Good for what it is, but I overestimated it
on 8 April 2013
This is surprisingly strong rope. It was able to hold me in a rope swing without any issues, and I'm about 190lbs. Overall it's a good product, but my friends and I used it for the wrong purpose. Because of the way the rope is constructed, it's very prone to fraying from rubbing against tree bark. I learned this the hard way when the rope snapped while I was at the top of my swing, causing me to fall 20 feet through the air.
I'm fine, the ground was surprisingly soft, but I'd like to avoid something like this again, and I'd like to help others avoid it too. So let me say this: this product is very good for what it is designed for, but it is definitely not something that should be used for building a safe rope swing.
