    Default Surf ropes FFS!!

    So frustrated with surf ropes right now. Bought a Swell rope which looked cool, nice handle and in two surf trips it is fraying like crazy. Sending that one back, read a ton of reviews and nearly all of them are having a ton of fraying problems so my question is does a rope exist that won't easily fray or should I use a wakeboard rope in its place? I just want to be sure I make the right choices at this point.

    don't use a wakeboard rope. the difference in the handles can snag an arm/leg and a 1-way trip to the ER.

    we always had good luck with hyperlite and ronix.

    I have had a Ronix for around 5 years or more, still looks great. I wouldn't worry about a bit of fraying, the rope is thick and it isn't going to break.

    These Joystick surf ropes are the bomb!! Well built, quality rope, super comfy handle that is really well padded and they literally retract right back into the boat.

    We've had this one since 2016 and it still looks brand new. No longer available but you can google CWB Proline LG Surf Rope.

    I think mine is some kind of Proline brand or something but it’s lasted great since 2016.

    ^^. Braided rope with no handle. We only bring out the ski rope when someone is too weak to hold the rope with their grip strength.

    Mine has a small handle, a couple knots with foam grips to help pull you into the pocket.

    Only thing I donít like about it is you need to untwist it often from bouncing around on the other side of the wake.

    EDIT: itís a straight line sports surf rope.
