  • Beautiful decorative rope

Our Promanila rope is a beautiful synthetic alternative to the natural plant fiber and is the nicest looking on the market. It is designed to look like natural fiber Manila and is constructed using film polypropylene fiber strands. 

I give the Promanila rope 5 stars. It looks like natural fiber rope, but much stronger and with a longer lifespan. I used it for a 18′ swing and noticed little to no stretch when I sat on the swing. I was really surprised how easy it was to work with. I had no trouble weaving it back through itself to create eye splices. All around it’s a high quality rope.  -Anthony D.

Promanila

If you love the look of natural Manila rope but you don’t like some of the disadvantages, Promanila rope is for you. Some of the advantages of Promanila compared to natural Manila are that it feels smoother and does not mildew, rot, shed, fade, shrink or harden. Our premium Promanila rope has excellent resistance to most chemicals, marine growth and petroleum products. It lasts up to three times longer than Manila and maintains its coloring. The tensile strength of Promanila is nearly 50% stronger than natural Manila rope even though it is lighter and floats on water.

This premium grade, UV resistant rope is also known as synthetic Manila rope, Un Manila rope, Pro Manila rope, Poly Manila rope, Tan Pro, Poly Tan, and Un-Manila. Although it does last longer than natural Manila, it does eventually break down in the sunlight. If you need large quantities, click ‘Bulk Promanila’ for discounted, wholesale pricing.

Although unmanila rope is better in almost every way, and serves as a replacement for the same applications, there is just something special about natural fiber Manila rope, and if you prefer it, we have all sizes and lengths in stock.

    3/8 inch Promanila Rope

    Looks like a lighter color manila rope. Appears to be well made. Delivery was nice and quick. Nothing bad to say about it. That being said, sometimes rope is just rope. I buy from Right Rope for the excellent customer service. Plain and simple.

    For our some of our ornamental landscaping applications we were looking for a material that has longer strength and appearance durability over natural manila, while maintaining a similar look.. We tried the pro-manila. We found this to be a great replacement for our needs. It is comparable to work with, looks great, feels good and lasts longer. Compared to manila we also noticed it: is more abrasion resistant, is a bit harder to cut, is a bit heavier, does not shrink or swell with the weather, does not shed fibers, has no odor and stretches a bit under load.

    For our applications we are delighted with promanila. Although is a bit pricier than natural manila we expect it to last and look better longer. As such our added expense will be offset with reduced maintenance cost.

    Great rope!

    We ordered this to complete a marina-style fence on our ranch. It was perfect for what we needed! The price was the cheapest we found. Shipping was very fast, we had the rope in a few days. The rope seems to be very high quality and I have no doubt it will stand up to our south Texas weather for years to come.

    Speedy delivery. Nice options for thickness and lengths. Easy to work with for our wooden rope swings. Grandkids will be happy….. Hopefully the unmanila will last longer and holdup better than the true hemp roping…..

    Not Quite What I Wanted

    I was looking for a rope that I could use as a tug with my St. Bernard and thought this might do the trick. Nope the end comes apart and the rope unravels so it’s pretty much useless for this purpose. Guess its back to the drawing board, probably should have ordered something else, but what? Really wanted something like what they use for ships and I assume that is some kind of cotton or cloth but that’s not a choice.

      Hi Kenneth, I am sorry to hear the rope didn’t work for your application. We definitely wouldn’t recommend Promanila for use with pets. Feel free to call us to discuss before purchasing something else and we will help you choose the right rope.

    great looking rope

    The rope is just as advertised and a beautiful strong looking rope, perfect for our outdoor railing. We haven’t installed it yet due to waiting for the heavy iron/bronze rings to arrive for installation but I feel certain this will be a beautiful outcome! Thank you Right Rope!

    Excellent Product and Service

    Such a great experience with this company. Personal service, easily reached and friendly communication. Very helpful in steering me in the right direction for the rope that was best for my back porch deck project. I can’t wait to finish it up and post pictures (but I move kinda slow and it may be a month or two, haha)

Product Details

Price Hacks

You can order Promanila 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. If you are ordering 1.25″ x 600′, 1.5″ x 375′ or more, or 2″ x 210′ or more in one continuous length, it must ship freight to a business address with a forklift. 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 300’ of 2” Unmanila rope and you don’t have a business address with a forklift, you can have us cut your rope into two, 150’ 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.
