I am about to buy a new rope and I was hoping for some good advice from the board. Share any thoughts you have about the following deals I've come across to help me decide:

Bullet Lines Power Core for $65
SL Fire Wire for $60
Accurate Fuse for $65
Accurate A-Line for $70

Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

if you have one of those coated lines that are the non knot ropes does that change the feel of the pull behind the boat?

NO THEY JUST MAKE THINGS LESS OF A HASSEL....THATS IT. MORE EXPENSIVE BUT BETTER. THEYRE ALSO A LITTLE MORE STIFF SO IMO MAKE THE ROPE STRETCH LESS.....

Non-knotted ropes? I'm not sure how much that really changes the pull. After a couple pulls the knots shouldn't continue to stretch, elongate, or creep. However, knots do create weak spots in your line. That is where ropes tend to break, but that only happens at max load. I believe SL stitchs some of their mains which allows them not to use knots. But you run into the same problem upon max load the stitching can fail and you still have a busted rope. Mind you it is very difficult to put a line at max load. This only happens on a super hard fall when the rider does not let go of the handle.

No. i meant the ones that are like glossed over and
are said to prevent knots.

The pull should not change w/ coating, if it does it is very, very minimal. Like you said it is there to prevent knots and have a clean feel sliding thru your hands upon a fall, pick-up, and start.
