Hollow Braid rope is flat kind of rope made from polypro that’s easily spliced. It’s used extensively since it’s economical and versatile.
As always, Shipping is Free on each and every order.
Sometimes you need a rope that stretches very little, or not at all. In those cases, we have 2 options for you.
The first is our polyester rope which we have in sizes from 1/8″ up to 3/8″. We provide it in different colors in the smaller sizes.This rope will stretch very little.
The other option is our Kevlar® rope which has a polyester jacket. Since Kevlar breaks down faster than polyester when used outdoors, we have jacketed the Kevlar with polyester fibers to make it last longer. This rope is virtually no stretch and also very strong. We carry this rope in a 3/32″, a 1/4″ and 5/16″. We’ll be adding a 3/16″ size soon.
Either rope you choose will be shipped out to you within 3 days of the date of purchase. Normally we ship the next day or the day after, but we ask for 3 days since, well…stuff happens.
Polyester rope, which is still sometimes called by duPont’s trade name Dacron®, is a popular choice for many uses. Polyester fiber has excellent resistance to UV and also has high abrasion resistance. One thing that distinguishes polyester rope from the more popular nylon rope, is that polyester stretches very little during use. This makes it the perfect choice for guy lines, tents and any other time you need to have a line that stays taut and and doesn’t stretch.
We know that black Dacron is very popular in a 3/16 size for use as guy lines and we have a product that fits the bill perfectly. It’s our black, 100 percent polyester cord in various lengths from 100 ft up to 3000 ft. As always, we have discounts on volume purchases starting at 2 each.
Cotton rope is still a popular all around rope, even with the rise in use of synthetic ropes such as nylon and polypropylene.
One thing we need to caution you on is purchasing our cotton rope for use as toys for your pet or bird. Our cotton rope is a blend of cotton and polyester fibers and is not recommended for use with animals who may swallow any portion of the rope.
Our cotton rope is great for all other uses!

Nylon Rope is the most popular synthetic rope in use today.
The reason is that nylon has a higher break than the other popular choices and it has excellent UV resistance which is why it’s widely used for outdoor applications including for boats, flagpoles, hauling, etc.
It also has very good abrasion resistance which make it a good choice for use where the jacket comes in contact with a hard surface. It should not be used for instances where you need a non stretch rope such as tents, trotline, etc.
Twine is a small sized cord. It can be any fiber from hemp to nylon and is used for anything where things need to be bound or secured but a big break strength isn’t needed.
For a long lasting twine, it’s best to use either a nylon or polyester fiber since both these synthetic fibers stand up well to UV and have great abrasion resistance.
Cotton Rope which is often called Sash Cord since it was used years ago as the sash in windows, could be considered the workhorse in the world of rope.
Though it’s lost favor with the advent of synthetic ropes, cotton rope is still a popular choice for many people and companies. Among other things people like the softness and the fact that it knots well. It continues to be very popular in the entertainment rigging industry.
Since our cotton rope is a blend of cotton and polyester one thing it should NOT be used for is bird or animal toys.
Twisted 3 Strand Polypro is one of the most popular synthetic ropes. It’s cheap, fairly strong and in quite a few cases, will get the job done. Since it also floats you can see why poly rope is popular, especially in boating and other water based uses.
Because it’s made of mono polypro (polypropylene) it doesn’t have very good UV resistance but most people can live with that because it’s so cheap to replace.
Make sure when you’re comparing prices online of Twisted poly rope that you factor in the cost of shipping. Here at Quality Nylon Rope all of our prices include Free Shipping.
Most people are familiar with polypro (ie polypropylene) rope from their hardware or home improvement store.

Did you know that there is another kind of polypro rope that’s quite soft?This kind of rope is called Multi Filament Polypro and is used in many applications where it’s expected that someone will come in contact with the rope. Because of it’s soft feel it’s used as barrier rope and swimming pool lane rope, to name two.
