      The natural fibres of Manila rope shrink when wet, which is why it’s worth adding 10-15% to the total length that you require. Manila demonstrates excellent knot retention. The knots become much tighter and more difficult to untie, meaning they’re less likely to slip. Coupled with a natural resistance to saltwater, this makes it an ideal choice for rigging, fishing nets and boat fenders.

      In recent years, manila ropes have also become a popular choice for rope-based exercise – as they’re inherently strong, and tough enough to withstand even the most intensive of training programmes. They’re an affordable, worthwhile addition to any gym setting. And as part of our battle ropes collection, we now offer manila ropes with black PVC end caps.
