1.0 out of 5 stars poorly writren, 1 May 2016
Poorly written in high handed prose adding complication and unitelligable sentences and replete with oxymorons. If anything a good comic read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as described, 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This rope is advertised as 38 mm diameter but actually is only 36 - 37 mm diameter at best peak to peak as measured with an accurate Vernier Caliper gage. This makes the rope lighter and lets face it misrepresented.

The supplier should be aware that on the most generous of measurements the rope is only 36 - 37 mm. So 1 -2 mm error in 37 may not seem like much but it is in fact about 3% to 5.5% error.

Chinese rope manufacturers will be well aware of this error and have under-manufactured this rope to save materials and costs. Hence it is sold as 38 mm but in fact falls short by 3%-5.5%. This practice is common in steel bolts made in China where threads are made sub standard by removing a small amount of steel from the thread to save costs on steel making the nut likely to pull off the thread under load. So we have British Standards for steel bolts and rods used to make bolts to make them safe and legislate against this practice.

The best way to overcome this issue with rope is to buy the ropes by the weight. For example a good weight for a 38 mm - 9 m nylon battle rope is 8 kg. If it is under that it is probably not 38 mm. So look at the weight and buy the heaviest rope for the given diameter you can find. If there is no weight listed walk away.

Ropes are hard to measure accurately. A Vernier gage is required and a good rope should be over the specified diameter, My observation is that this rope when measured peak to peak with a good Vernier Gage it is not 38 mm and at best it is 36 - 37mm peak to peak.

Thanks for reading me and kind regards..James Black Esq (Google me JamesBlackEsq I can solve all kinds of difficult issues)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but still a bit too large, 28 April 2016

This is the sophisticated and subtly way to make your car look like a sleeping Transformer. However the badge is still a bit too large to be truly subtle
