Can this rope be used to water ski and wakeboard? Also is this a good rope?

Brian,
There is a significant difference between a ski rope and a wakeboard rope. I can't say that one would be good for either. You need a non-stretch for wakeboarding, Bullet Lines makes a very nice inexpensive non-stretch rope. My personal favorite however is the Accurate A-line, but it doesnt come cheap.

Up until 2 weeks ago I had that same handle rope combo, got it at walmart for like $32. I used it all summer and i thought it was an ok rope until i stepped up to a proline spectra. I didnt believe all the hype about non-stretch till I first felt the difference, it is so much better when you have a good rope and handle. Even my girl/driver can tell in the boat, she says she can fell every move i make.
If you need a rope this one will work, but if your upgrading save some more and get a good rope.

Ken,

How would that rope work with a non-spectra handle?
