Multi-Filament Polypropylene (MFP) solid braid rope has long been a favorite among horse handlers, so much so that it's commonly called "Derby Rope." Lighter in weight and lower in price than nylon and polyester ropes, MFP rope also has high resistance to rot and moisture, is low-stretch, holds knots well, has a high-tensile strength, and is machine washable. SGT KNOTS Solid Braid Rope / Derby Rope is also manufactured in a manner that keeps it free from any potentially hazardous chemicals and dyes, making this rope perfectly safe for use around livestock and other animals.

Derby Rope's soft feel is another factor that has made it a favorite rope in ranches and farms, on boats, around the house, and even in the bedroom (or whatever room you head to when your kinks involve knots). MFP solid braid rope is also used in many decorative purposes, and is used by film and theatre technicians for a variety of on-set and backstage tasks. You'll get years of regular use out of this all-purpose utility rope, no matter what your roping needs may be.

    Terrible UV Resistance

    This line feels nice in the hand and holds knots well but in my experience should be avoided for any continuous outdoor application. I used some of this as a dock/tow line for a small boat. It's great for that application since it floats and the color is easy to see. However, the color (orange) faded noticeably after less than a week of being left outside, and the line itself was dead in under a year. To the manufacturers credit, this isn't advertised anywhere as being UV stabilized or marine grade, but I think they could clarify that this definitely isn't suitable for outdoor applications. At least it's cheap.

    Only place to buy from.

    My item was for a Christmas order that was a difficult to find color. Thank you for having what I needed.

    Great quality rope but the order was not filled the way I ordered it

    They sent more than I ordered which would normally be a good thing but the added length made the project more difficult. In this case I ended up with a lot of short useless pieces after cutting the pieces that came too long.


    Very nice braided line.

    Very nice braided line. Feel it was good value not absolutely sure. Came quickly, color as described.
