    Default Halyard Rope

    Hey All,

    Been having issues with our manufacturer provided manilla halyards on our ground ladders. Does anyone have a suggestion for a narrow diameter (3/8) synthetic rope/cord that is easily gripped?

    CMC Ladder Line. We replaced all of our halyards with the 1/2" version and have never looked back to manilla rope.
