Just a thought:

Have you considered buying a bulk length from RWRope or Hamilton or New England ropes or sopme other good source and making your own.

Benefits could include:
  • learning how to do an eye splice (not rocket science and a worthwhile thing to know)
  • Probably cheaper
  • Probably get the length you want (measure twice and order once)
  • Probably learn how to do a proper job on an end whipping.

Just a thought.

Rik
