    I have some 1 1/4" double 12 braid(at least thats what I have been told its called) rope.Also called megabraid 2.It usually sells for almost $6 a foot but I can get it for $2!I bought 2 25' ropes(tied my own loops) for $50 each.This stuff looks like it would last forever.If anyone is interested I could get some more and ship it for cost.I think the guy says he has 600' of it so let me know if anyone wants some.E-mail me @ buckaznaked@yahoo.com.

    I'll post some pics tomorrow after I take some tonight.I don't know the rated strength but its gotta be insane!I had one of those yellow straps from Northern Hydraulics that was like $60 or something and broke it the second time I used it.This stuff looks way stronger and I don't think I could break it.I am a Longshoreman(load and unload ships) and it is just like the lines on tugboats.

    It looks like mooring rope. I've hooked my 5,000lb truck to one trying to pull a Jeep out of the goo. It cleaned everything off my front seat but the Jeep didn't move and the rope didn't break.

    The hard part is getting loops in it with approved knots.

    How much you want for the "looped" ones?

    How long?
