One of the first lines ever designed specifically for arborists. Arbor-Plex is a 12-strand single braid rope with a polyester cover surrounding polyolefin fibers in the center, making it abrasion resistant as well as lightweight. It is a great choice for wet climates where mildew and rot can be a problem.
Arbor-Plex is often used as an economical climbing line in 12mm diameter, and is a good tag line or inexpensive light rigging rope.

Ratings & Reviews
This rope is great for those days when a blakes hitch and spurs are all you need. Takes the abuse of natural crotch descents. Does not feel exceptionally stretchy in my opinion but compared to 24 strand there is a difference. I even use it for small limb rigging. All in all, when simple is enough this rope is fit for the job.
