I am trying toi find the kind of rope that Flip used on his L&L video. Has anyone had any success with this brand, dimension, etc.?

Thank you.

Flip doesn't give much information other than that he uses nylon rope. To that end, I just bought some 3/8 inch twisted nylon rope from Home Depot a couple of days ago, and I like it better than the 1/4 inch cotton I had been practicing on. That being said, I haven't compared it to the thicker cotton stage rope that many pros prefer.

A second thought: Flip can use nylon because he doesn't cut in his performance. Cutting nylon on stage would be disastrous.

Magnus,

Just found a good selection of Nylon Rope at a Marine Supply store. Great colors and a variety of textures.
