Yale Ultrex 12 strand single braid (UHMWPE) Winch Line
Stronger than steel, floats on water.
Ultrex is a 12-strand single braid of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber enhanced with Yale's Maxijacket High Performance coating, which supplies superior abrasion resistance. Additional abrasion resistance is attributed to the larger filament diameter. In comparable yarn sizes Ultrex will contain roughly half as many individual filaments compared to similar products. Each of these individual filaments are more cut resistant than the finer filaments in other products and manifest improved abrasion resistance in the larger rope product. Ultrex's braid angles and twist level are designed to optimize break strength and keep stretch low.
UHMWPE is the most forgiving high-modulus fiber, giving better sheave-cycling capabilities than other high-tech fibers. Ultrex has zero water absorption and maintains its flexibility even in freezing conditions. As is the case for most Yale ropes, the strengths shown in the charts are for spliced ropes.
Available per metre in 10mm, 12.5mm and 16mm.

(A common mistake for people first starting with this splice procedure is to skip Step 2. For Ultrex you ADD 2 full fids to the original mark made in step 1.)Code: ULT824ZFrom: $10.95 inc GST
The ISC Rope Wrench is a device that allows DRT (double rope techniques) to be performed whilst using a single rope. This is achieved by creating a bend above the climber’s hitch, which with the addition of the stiff tether creates a ‘contained doubled rope system’ that travels throughout the tree allowing for a level of consistency of friction, impossible to replicate in doubled rope climbing.Code: RP280From: $169.00 inc GST
Best all rounder for branches up to 65mm diameter. Also available with Flat Handles (27/690) or Short Handles (P22.5/570) fitted. Timbersaws loppers evolved from the combined research of leading foresters and individuals. Their expertise and knowledge were brought together to produce loppers which are recognised as industry leaders. The double action handle lever system combined with the design of the straight blade and curved blade gives you the best performance with the least amount of effort.Code: 26/660$195.39 inc GST
