Three-Strand Twisted Manila Rope

Three-strand twisted manila rope

Two sizes available – 1/2” and 3/8”. Approximately 450 ft of each, but willing to cut to length. I can/will measure the exact lengths if there is interest in full length. Used for some decorative work a while ago, but time to get the balance out of the garage.

Asking:
$0.35/ft for 1/2” (+ shipping)
$0.20/ft for 3/8” (+ shipping)

Located in Mobile, AL (36601)

Re: Three-Strand Twisted Manila Rope

The 1/2" manila is no longer available.

I have a new asking price for the 3/8” - $0.15/ft (+ shipping).

I also have most of a spool (probably 500+ ft) of Pro Manila rope in 1/2". This is a synthetic substitute for manila; basically it is polypropylene dyed tan (but that description may not do it justice). It has many advantages over natural manila, including lasts longer, doesn’t absorb water and more chemical resistant; and some disadvantages, mainly less resistant to UV. It looks and feels pretty good. You can check it out here. Asking price is $0.45/ft (+ shipping), which is about half of the spool rate.
