Arborist Throw Lines

Installing your climbing line and friction saver in a tree starts with a good throw line. We've gathered a selection of the best throw lines for tree climbing in one place. You'll find high-strength Dyneema and Spectra throw lines for professional use as well as inexpensive 1/8” throw line.

To keep your throw line throwing perfectly time after time, you'll want to make sure and buy appropriate throw line storage for your throw lines and throw weights.
