I'm looking for a new wakeboard rope. Right now I have a ten dollar Walmart ski rope. I've been looking online and there seems to be a huge range of prices for ropes. I would like a good rope but I don't want to spend more than 60 dollars, any suggestion for a good rope for that price?

I would check out the sites avertising above. I personally have had good success with wakeside. Jason over there is a big help.

get a no stretch rope. Obviously better for riding but also has a terrific safety benefit. No rope recoil into the boat. Worth the money for sure. I have no brand preference

I agree most nonstretch ropes will fit to your ability.
I have heard several people say to get a Jacket line from Grizzley for 50 or the Red line from Bullet for around the same.

http://www.grizzly-sports.com/ is the website but I would call and talk to them.

Bullet Lines is on ebay or you can buy them direclty from the bulletlines.com but it looks like their prices have gone up. You can email the owner at kland@bulletlines.com and maybe strike a deal

You can get a good non-stretch spectra rope for between about $60 and $100, and it will be worth every penny. I have had an Accurate Fire Jacket for several years now and couldn't be more happy with it. I wouldn't recomend getting a Bullet rope. A lot of people, including me, have had problems with them falling apart pretty quickly.

Proline sk series great non stretch line for the money.
If you want an even better line then Proline Ak series.

Daniel,

I would definatly invest in a good nonstretch rope. I have had the Accurrate Jacket for two seasons and it is very nice and durable. Easy to see in the water and it floats. I got mine on e-bay for about 50 bones. Check e-bay

Daniel,

I can sell you a Bullet Armor Line for $55 shipped. It will not fall a part! A pic is below! Let me know! You can also look at other ropes on our website www.bulletlines.com

Thanks,

Spend the extra money, whatever you do. A good rope will last you 2+ years, and that beats buying cheap stuff each year. I bought a $120 spectra line 5 years ago and although its dirty and faded, it has nothing wrong with it. BTW, after you do spend the $$ on a good rope, TAKE CARE OF IT and it will last.....

Dan
