doesn't appear to be spectra.. i wouldn't buy it.. so its a get what you pay for.. go to www.grizzly-sports.com or something and check their clearance or closeouts from the year before.. i got a accurate fire line or something of that sort for 55.. and a decent handle will run another 40 ish.. i have had lines last me 10+ years.. without having to pay a fortune for them.. but definitely dont go cheap on them

the one you are looking at isn't terrible, it is low stretch but I would recommend a non-stretch rope that is also tangle proof. It definitely comes in handy and is worth the extra cash

You deffinatly want zero stretch. Its exactly what it says, the rope wont stretch when your weight is on it. make sense? Look on buywake.com or wakeside.com and get some things like this handle http://www.wakeside.com/page/W/PROD/straight_line_wakeboard_handles/straight_line_feather_wake_handle_07 The plastic sides make a really big difference. and the grip bar is replaceable. (mine has started to come apart, but its so commfy) And then rope wise, in my opinion its hard to make a bad choice if you stick with companies like straightline and accuratelines.
