Teufelberger Tiger Blood Tachyon
Teufelberger's Tachyon line of rope is a super-popular 11.5mm arborist climbing line that won't stop winning. Perfect for mechanical devices, Tachyon resists the "bagginess" that occurs with lines of similar size.
The special Tiger Blood color of this rope is a limited edition that is possibly so cool that you can't process it with a normal brain.
Tensile Strength: 6,800 lbs
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 was climbing with a samson rope and as soon as i saw this rope i fell in love. The colors are my favorite it feels good in the hand and it knots easy, i tried it with my rope wrench and its just a match made in heaven 👌🏽
Tachyon in an awesome color - 04/23/2017
Reviewer: Gabriel Thompson
I absolutely prefer Tachyon over other ropes. Its just the right amount of firm. Nothing annoys me more than a overly supple rope that will hitch itself to every sprout and twig in sight. I love the color scheme because its easy to see and doesn't look dirty when it's dirty. A definitely unique color scheme! Dig it!
