We have a 70' 3-section spectra rope (WakeCord) and Fly-High Ultra-Light handle combination for a good price. Cords only too.

Good equipment, entry-level price.
Of course, I'm biased.

Do a search here and you'll find lots of opinions on different ropes.

I've got the Accurate Lines Jacket series rope with the Parks Carbon Fiber handle, great setup! The rope is ultra light, floats like a cork, and doesn't tangle. I got it pro-dealed along with a surfboard and vest but if you're paying full price it can be fairly expensive.

Speaking for Bill on this one but that pic in his profile is none other than George Banana Blair. A very stand up guy and Grandpa.

The mans a stud...I just had to use one can forget the banana websites dedicated to this legend.
As far as the rope deal..yeah shoe string size. I still cant get over the fact that she killed my rope(I need therapy)You should have heard the sound it make when these things break.I havent calmed down enough to check if any damage to prop/shaft on my new boat.Luckily we were just off the ramp.This time Im buying the brightest rope I can find.I really liked the jacket rope.I have the carbon handle.You can feel the flex in the handle..nice to grip all day.

i and several riding buddies have had's ropes for several (like 5) seasons now. it is an EXCELLENT product. other than some sun fading, they are still in perfect shape. i also have a yellowjacket, and i prefer the wakecord. they're lighter, thinner, and more supple, and if you do get a knot you can get it out (soak in dishsoap and tap with hammer). knots in YJs are permanent because it crushes the neoprene core. again, wakecord is an awesome product at an awesome price.

Thanks for the compliment on WakeCord, Trace. I have a cord from the original spool (1996)still in my boat. The day-glo orange has faded to a light pink, but it still works.

There may be some folks that think we build 'em too good.

A few years back a guy with a stern-drive called and told me he'd wrappped up his cord in his prop. He ran over it I guess, it does float after all.

The $49 cord survived, his $4000 gear-case did not.
