Tenex TEC 12mm (1/2") - Bulk Rope



BREAKING STRENGTH58.27 kN (13,100 lb)
DIAMETER12mm (1/2")


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 slings. 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.

Great stuff

by Paul -

Made some ultra slings with this and some rings and they work great. Loved saving money and having fun making something instead of buying it pre made.
