I went to wakecords.com and they sell Spectra line at a good price, but is it really a good line?? Can anyone give me some feed back about this line??

i've had one for about 3 or 4 seasons now, and it's a little faded but otw in perfect condition. it is very light & soft, but tangles a little easier than some other ropes. however, unlike most ropes, you can take knots out of it with some dish soap and a hammer.

I had their rope also for a couple of years. It's a good price for spectra but I did notice it knotted up quite a bit. Also there is no protective cover on it so it can burn as the rope runs through your hands while you are in the water when the boat circles to pick you up.

For the money they are very good. Not as nice as the yellow jacket ropes, but almost half the price.

soak the knot in dish soap, and bang on the knot a little with a hammer. try to work it loose; if it doesn't come out, repeat. i took a couple knots out that were like a year old this way.

Jay knows what's up. I got a new jacket line and was exploding off the wake today.

Tim,

Do you think the rope made the difference?

Aaron, I could tell on just the way the line was loading up, big difference. It was really tight all the way through the wake.
Hey! BT Lowe, everybody has chopped a line, just most don't admit it.

Haha, I knew you would find that!
I only did that to you because I wrapped
mine around the prop about the same time
as you. I was just lucky it didn't get cut.

Its amazing because every time I've
ever run over the rope, I have no idea
how it happened. I have to guess
it gets under the boat while the motor
is off and we drift over it, and then
it gets sucked in as soon as I fire up
the motor forgetting the rope is even in the water... let alone waiting under the boat
with in inches of the prop.

Never mind the fact that I was driving...
