Subject to revision later but this seems to be a good anchor line for light duty use. I will be using it with a medium size river mushroom anchor and wanted 100′ of line that would be compact for storing on a small 11′ inflatable boat.
A long piece of rope for cheap, but quality is definitely portrayed by the price
I bought this rope as a replacement anchor line for my 16″ Bayliner as it was cheap & long, and we only had about a 25′ anchor line at the time. When it arrived it was neatly packaged & woven (secured by zip ties), however once the zip ties were removed & we tried to straighten the line we found the problem that would be forth coming. The line was very kinked & is constructed of a cheap plastic-feeling rope. Upon using the rope several times (literally only 2-3 times) the strands that were braided together started to unravel. We didn’t buy this rope until late in the boating season, so as of right now it hasn’t broken, but I don’t forsee it lasting the entire next boating season. The one nice thing about this rope was that it had the quick attach clip/hook, which simplifies the attachment of the anchor and/or connecting it to your boat. All-in-all, if I had knew the quality of this rope I wouldn’t have wasted my money. Definitley worth shelling out some extra cash to avoid losing your anchor to a faulty line!
Product received as advertised…as a hollow braid 3/8 anchor line. however, I would not trust an anchor with a rope that had a working weight limit of 150lbs, max over 1000lb (thats what the package says) This means not to put over 150lbs load on it regularly/continously. It would likely hold up for a while but dont recommend for anchors your not prepared to lose. Still gave 3 stars because it delivered what it advertised, an inexpensive rope.
Not bad anchor line!
This is a pretty good, low priced anchor line. I purchased the 1/4″ x 50′ line last season, and it has held up fine since then.
Seasense Hollow Braid Anchor Line Polypropylene (3/8-Inch X 100-Feet)
I got this and tossed it in the boat thinking I would put it on the anchor hand wench and anchor later
Good Rope, Well Made.
Great lengh of rope, well made, its the kind of rope that is stiff and holds its shape out of the package for weeks after you get it, the carabiner at the end is very well attached and not moving or going anywhere. The package that the rope comes in has the rope “rolled up” in a fashion similar to if you roll a piece of rope around your arm only perfectly rope to rope left to right. This didn’t seem like an issue, until I opened the package and threw the rope out to unroll it. Each loop has to be undone in reverse or you will as I did, have a huge gobular mess of rope to deal with. Think of it like this the old corded phones coiled lines would get tangled up the best way to untangle them was to pull the cables appart as best you could hang the phone down and let it unwind intself, this is kind of the same deal. Also the rope is small in diameter which makes it hard on your hands to handle when raising and lowering, in my case, a 12lb anchor. Just something to keep in mind before you buy.
Easy to use but the line is diffucult to hold on to
It really isn’t the rope’s fault but it is difficult to pull up an anchor with this thin line. If you have a 10 lb anchor, I would go with a thicker line.
nice length and size for an anchor tripline
We have a lewmar claw anchor for our 32′ sloop. At times it can be difficult to pull up in the rocky bottom of our lake. We got this line to use as a trip line on the anchor, for those times when it is stuck, we can just pull up on the neck of the claw to release it. We chose 2 100′ lengths…fewer lines to tie together for those deep sets. The carabiner is not skimpy. We use that to connect to the anchor end.
Easy to untie
This is one of those deals where it’s hard to imagine anything with rope being a big deal. I have one anchor on some cheap rope and this one. This rope is 10x easier to untangle and the clip is nice to have on there.
No brainer here…
It securely attaches to my anchor, and inflatible I use to fish the 3 acre lake in my yard. I cut off the excess as my lake is only seventeen feet deep at best, and use it as a clothesline in my rural Tennessee paradise :o)
