True Blue 12mm
True Blue is a tough, 16-strand, 12mm climbing rope by Samson.
True Blue is the rope of choice for traditional climbers. Supple hand makes it a pleasure to work with when using friction hitches such as the Tautline and Blake's hitch.
Made from 100% polyester, True Blue has low stretch and high strength. It stays firm, round, and flexible with use and requires no milking. Its bright blue color makes it highly visible in the tree.
True Blue is a heavier climbing line, so if you are looking for a strong line that is a bit lighter, try ArborMaster. True Blue is not hand-spliceable, but is now available with Viking sewn splice.
