Hi All,

(still) Looking for a depower rope replacement.

So we are talking about Dyneema, AmSteel single braid, for example.

Thought it would be nice to post for the “toolman’s” the measurements and thickness of the used ropes

So for the depowerrope:
2009 / 2010 setup you need 2.5m
2011 freeride setup you need 5.5m

Now the thickness, I measure 6 mm which equals 1/4” if I’m not wrong. Anyone know the exact used thickness?

Btw are flying lines the 7/64” ?

LOL
Haha yeah spot on, I posted there as well but I’m doubting the 3/8” thickness, looks like it is going to be too thick for the ring placement.
There is something about line thickness and measurement, load or no load to the line with measurement.. thats the question..

Yeah, I have a new depower rope on my 2010 bar, and I swear it’s wearing really fast (as in I can feel it cutting into the rope after 5 sessions). I waxed the rope pretty solidly before I used it and in between sessions. Is it possible that there’s a imperfection in the center hole on the bar and that I need to somehow smooth it out?

I think craig meant 3/16”, not 3/8”.
