Replacement rope for throw bag

Post by JohnV » Sat Oct 06, 2018 8:00 pm

Hi all,

Where can I get replacement rope for a throwbag? Surely it is cheaper off the reel somewhere rather than buying a new bag?
Cheers!

Nichol end marina in Keswick sell it off the reel. I bought 50m off eBay last year for painters.

If anyone is looking for replacement rope, Up & Under (when I looked) were low on stock "off the reel" and could only supply 7m - which is not long enough for much at all. So I've bought a full 100m reel (10mm rope) and will be happy to sell on what I don't need - send me a PM.

I sell it, £1 a metre for 10mm and 80p for.8mm, the 8mm is similar to the weasel rope, 10mm a thicker version, not with a white core

I carry a 7m throwline quite often*, useful on narrow rivers/burns or any time you can position close enough to the likely path of a swimmer and/or want/need to get them to the bank sooner than 15m downstream (next fall or something...)

*often when I am carrying a throwline at all, which in the overall scheme of things is very rare now!

I have my ropes marked off at 5m intervals so I can dump a length and still have a good idea as to how much is left in the bag
