Samson Tenex TEC Rope

Tenex TEC (Two-End-Carrier) is an excellent 12-strand rope from Samson which is best used for splicing tree rigging slings. Tenex is a high strength, low stretch single braid polyester rope specifically designed with two ends per carrier. This makes it especially good for spliced products such as tree rigging and Whoopie slings which is why you will find it in many of our most popular spliced products. The 12-strand braid is very easy to splice, but makes the rope susceptible to plucking and abrasion if it is run over the bark of a tree as a rigging line. Tenex is coated with Samthane coating for durability and abrasion resistance.

In 3/8” diameter, Tenex makes excellent prusik cord, though it is not heat-resistant. (Pre-spliced Tenex prusiks can be found here.) The Yale Wire Basket Fid is an ideal tool for splicing Tenex up to 5/8” diameter.

Tenex is stronger per diameter than double braid ropes, but heavier and the looser braid is not as ideal for a rope that will be running. Tenex is best used for spliced slings.
