New England Saluting Branches 11.5mm RopeNew 2016 Colors
This custom version of Tachyon was created by Teufelberger to support Saluting Branches. Teufelberger is donating 5% of total sales (which will be matched by TreeStuff) to this ambitious and worthy cause.
Revolutionary Flexifirm Core Technology results in a lightweight 11.5mm arborist climbing line that stays firm and round. Tachyon performs well in popular hardware designed for use with 11mm ropes.
Tachyon's firm yet flexible design and superior strand definition significantly improve friction hitch performance without the "bagginess" that occurs with other 11mm ropes. The firm, round cross section also improves grip for less hand fatigue without the added bulk and weight of half inch ropes. 6800 lbs. tensile strength.
Weight: 5.8 lbs/100'
Sunlight/UV: Very little degradation from sunlight. Can be used outside over long term if inspected regularly.
Chemicals: Nylon will degrade with strong oxidizing agents, mineral acids, and 90% formic acid. May discolor when exposed to high levels of carbon dioxide. Polyester has good resistance to most chemicals, except 95% sulfuric acid and strong alkalines at boil.
Heat: Nylon melts at 460°F with progressive strength loss above 300°F. Polyester melts at 480°F with progressive strength loss above 300°F.
Dielectrics: Good resistance to the passage of electrical current. However, dirt, surface contaminants, water entrapment, and the like can significantly affect dielectric properties. Extreme caution should be exercised any time a rope is in the proximity of live circuits.
Working Loads: No blanket safe working load (SWL) recommendations can be made for any line because SWL's must be calculated based on application, conditions of use, and potential danger to personnel among other considerations. It is recommended that the end user establish working loads and safety factors based on best practices established by the end user's industry; by professional judgment and personal experience; and after thorough assessment of all risks. The SWL is a guideline for the use of a rope in good condition for non-critical applications and should be reduced where life, limb, or valuable property is involved, or in cases of exceptional service such as shock loading, sustained loading, severe vibration, etc. The Cordage Institute specifies that the SWL of a rope shall be determined by dividing the Minimum Tensile Strength of the rope by a safety factor. The safety factor ranges from 5 to 12 for non-critical uses and is typically set at 15 for life lines.

I recently purchased 120' of this rope ( saluting branches) and so far I love it!!! Of course the only other rope I've used is Arborplex so I think anything is better then that !! But going from a 12 stand climb rope to a 24 strand climb rope is phenomenally better , and I can say that using this rope for SRT is AWESOME!! GREAT JOB New England!!
Wow - 10/01/2016
I just started using this rope as my daily driver about 2 weeks ago and it has made me believe. It feels good in your hands with or without gloves and glides through my rope runner. Also great for double rope that I use with a cambium saver

I use this as my everyday rope...runs great in a Petzl Rig or just using a blakes hitch to climb. I don't us any sort of rope saver at my tie in point which wears a rope down pretty quickly but this stuff is pretty resilient and so far not many issues. Have been using on a weekly basis since Sept 2015.
