Type of rope for a simple rope swing?
Report this Post

I have some trees in my area that I really want to put a big swing in. The swing will be about 50-75 feet tall and I will be attached to the end by my harness for even more fun :D

Being there so many ropes, what kind should I choose? Climbing rope is pretty expensive for a simple thing like this, but there is also polyester, polypropylene, and some other natural ropes.

Thanks!

Polypropylene is known for being value priced and moderately strong. I would go with that. It will be able to withstand UV for quite some time.
