I ordered two feet of this beautiful rope. The quality is amazing! Only really needed one foot, but ordered two just encase. I am glad I did though. Although I need them for a project and just am using them for handles, but I didn't realize they came in the one foot increments. So I got two separate foot pieces. They will still work great for me on this project, but I was a little surprised to see that. If that was noted somewhere I missed it. Again it'll work perfect for me, but if someone needed a full two feet. It wouldn't of worked out.

The first 3/4 inch Manila I bought seemed to be a little over 3/4 inch. It was hard to get through a 3/4 inch hole. The last I got seemed to be a little under 3/4 which was just right for me as it has to go through 3/4 inch holes. I really like the last I got and hope all in the future is the same, works perfect. I like the quick shipment.

Tug of War Rope

Manila rope is the best tug of war rope because it is the strongest rope of all the natural plant fiber ropes, with the highest breaking strength, and has very low stretch. The breaking strength of 1 ½ inch manila rope is 16,650 pounds. The natural fibers from the abacá plant gives this rope excellent grip for your hands.

Taking good care of your tug-of-war rope will help it last longer. Store it in a cool, dry place indoors, and select to add rubber ends before purchasing to prevent fraying and enjoy some good ol’ fun year after year!

Gym Climbing Rope

Natural Manila is a great climbing rope for gyms because it offers high strength, low stretch, and rugged grip. Since Manila rope is a three-strand twisted rope, a loop can be easily spliced onto the end of the rope so it can be attached to a mount on the ceiling, without reducing the breaking strength of the rope. A standard 6 inch eye splice should be adequate for most installations. We can splice the loop for you along with your order. We can also hot shrink a rubber handle on the end of your rope to reduce fraying and increase the life of your rope.

The most popular diameter for a manila climbing rope is 1 ½ inches and the most popular length is between 15 – 24 feet. We can custom cut any length to meet your facility requirements.

About Manila Rope

Our 3 strand twisted Manila rope is grade 1 and meets or exceeds the Cordage Institute Specifications for Manila rope. Manila rope is sometimes referred to as hemp rope but it is not actual hemp (cannabis). It is made in the Philippines from the fibers of the abacá plant which is a close relative of the common banana plant. The fibers are stripped from the leaves of the abacá plant and twisted into yarns. Manila is the strongest and most popular natural-fiber rope and has the best grip in your hands — even when wet. Natural Manila rope is a very low stretch rope and holds knots really well.

If you need large quantities, click ‘Bulk Manila Rope’ for discounted, wholesale pricing.

Synthetic Manila Rope Option

If you live in a humid or wet climate, or you don’t like some of these characteristics, you might consider our Promanila rope. This synthetic Manila has a longer service-life and does not mildew or rot.

Manila Rope vs Sisal

Another popular natural-fiber rope is sisal rope. Sisal is better than Manila rope for use with pets, as Manila rope is treated with a mineral oil that may not be safe for animals. Sisal rope is lighter in color and has a lower breaking strength. Both ropes make great indoor decorative ropes for arts and crafts.

Price Hacks

You can order Manila rope by the foot in any length you want. Consider three ways you can place your order to save money or the need for freight carrier shipping.

Incremental Pricing

There are price breaks you can take advantage of by buying in the increments outlined above. For example, buying a 100’ piece is a much better price per foot than buying 98’ by the foot. Consider rounding up to the next incremental pricing bracket to save yourself some money.

Combining Incremental Pricing and ‘By the Foot’

You can also save money by buying an even increment plus a few feet by the foot.

Example 1: If you need 117’ in one continuous piece you can add two items to your cart, a 100’ increment and quantity ‘17’ by the foot. We can send you the 117’ piece in one continuous length. Just leave us a note during checkout about how you want your rope cut.

Example 2: If you need two pieces 60’ each, the best way to buy it would be to add two items to your cart, a 100’ increment and quantity ‘20’ by the foot. Just leave a note letting us know you want two 60’ pieces.

Inspiration

If you need one continuous piece that weighs over 150 pounds, it will have to ship via freight carrier. The following sizes weigh over 150 pounds and freight will need to be quoted on an individual basis: 1.25″ x 350′ or more, 1.5″ x 250′ or more, 2″ x 150′ or more, 3″ x 60′ or more. If you don’t have a business address or the equipment to unload a freight shipment, you can avoid shipping by freight carrier if your rope can be cut into smaller pieces. For example, if you need 200’ of 2” Manila rope and you don’t have a business address with a forklift, you can have us cut your rope into two, 100’ pieces. This will allow for regular ground shipping and make it easier to handle and install. Please contact us with your address for a freight quote if needed.

Add a thimble?
If you'd like us to install thimble(s) in your rope, add eye splice(s) above and add to cart. Then visit our Rope Thimbles product, select the options you want, and add it to the cart as well. If ordering multiple ropes, leave us a note at checkout about how you want them installed.
