Samson Tenex 16



SOLD PER METER - CUT TO LENGTH Easy to splice - perfect for making up adjustable leg loops for your SRT system! Samson TenexTEC is well recognized in the arb industry as the standard rope for use in 'natural crotch' rigging. TenexTEC is a 12-strand, Samthane coated, high-tenacity polyester, single braid. Tenex combines low stretch and outstanding abrasion resistance (hence natural crotch rigging). Its abrasion resistance is due to the special Samthane coating which allows for easy splicing while enhancing wear life and snag resistance. Because it is so easy to splice Tenex is the rope of choice for making rope tools like whoopies, loopies and dead-eye slings.
