Snatch Rope for sale

No longer for sale. You must win via auction: http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...very-rope.html

I recently won this at a wheeling event, but I am good on recovery gear. This brand new rope is very similar to the below Bubba Rope that retails for $289 plus shipping. It is 1" to 1 1/4" x 20' and I will sell for $111 shipped.

Heavy Duty Professional Snatch Rope : Breaking Strength: 52,300 lbs. : Bubba Rope

Actual rope. Can for diameter reference.

Re: Snatch Rope for sale

Does it work as advertised or is it just for recovery?

Re: Snatch Rope for sale

A snatch recovery rope stretches to I believe around 30% to evenly distribute high loading during recoveries. Its ability to stretch means that the force more gradually increases during the pull instead of a snap or yank from a traditional strap. Unfortunately to experience the most benefit you do not want to have an overly heavy-duty rope. For an FJ this seems to be a bit overkill.

Also because of its ability to stretch a snatch rope should only be used for recovery and not towing because the internal friction in the rope from prolonged usage can lead to failure.

My Build:07 Black Cherry 6MT

You haven’t really failed, because you haven’t really tried to succeed. So don’t credit yourself as a failure. You’re worse than that.

LOL, too many vodka what evers. It looks like a great recovery rope! Woven loops with wear covers are great.

Re: Snatch Rope for sale

Somewhat related.. I just bought the Bubba (not the Big) and that should be enough for recovery of other vehicles. Like someone above said, I think the Big Bubba might be overkill for recovering light trucks like the FJ -- at least from what I've read about this type of tool. Here's a video about the Bubba Rope products..
