XTR 12

Custom and Specialty Ropes


XTR 12

XTR 12 is an arborist rigger's line with a "nubby" texture to allow for better control. Its construction yields a light yet strong line that provides lifetime flexibility while maintaining abrasion resistance.

Key Features

  • Professional grade
  • Light weight hollow braid
  • Excellent flexibility

Built to be round and stay round, XTR 12 is a 12-strand single braid of polyester/"Para-ep" Olefin. This all-synthetic rope resists rot and mildew, and performs equally well in both wet and dry conditions. XTR 12 has a blended yellow strand along with diameter-specific color coding for easy identification.

XTR 12 Specifications and Data

Diameter (Inches) Average Break Strength *(Lbs) Suggested Design Factor 10:1 **(Lbs) Weight (Lbs/100f)
5/8 9,800 1,960 10.1
3/4 12,750 2,550 13.3

* Average break strength is based on spliced rope or capstans samples. Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lower the design factor.
** Suggested design factor is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instantaneous changes in load, up or down, in excess of 10% of the rope's suggested design factor constitute hazardous shock load and would void the suggested design factor recommendation. The end user is responsible for choosing the correct design factor specific to their application.
