    I bought a non-stretch rope 5 years ago, I don't remember what kind it is. Since then I have tried numerous non-stretch ropes non of them seem to compare to that first one. Just wondering what type of rope everyone uses.

    I currently have Helix ropes. I think they are great but they are also the only ones I have ever owned

    A picture or description of the rope would help. I've been using the slick vinyl coated ropes since I first saw them. The only problem I've had with them is when they knot or get pinched hard the cover tears. To fix it I carry a piece of clear shrik wrap.

    Most recently I bought one of the vinyl covered rope however it felt like it was stretching to me. There is definitely a difference in my old one and the new one, it feels like I loose pop with the vinyl covered rope. If it is do the the stretch or not I don't know. Please help!!!

    Overtons used to sell a "barefoot rope" best rope I have ever owned. Twice as thick as any rope I have owed. They don't sell it any more.

    A buddy of mine has one of those and I think it blows. It regularly comes flying into the boat when he holds on too long after a crash. One time I was sitting in the back of the boat and it flew into the boat wrapped around my hand and slammed it into the ski pylon sticking up from the motor box. (Super Air Nautique)

    I use the BI rope it is thicker and holding up real well. A few people I know have been combining ropes simistrech with no strech, no strech with ski rope and things like that.

    I have what looks to be the NON coated version of this one and it does not stretch much at all. Not sure about this particular rope. The coated rope that I own does have some stretch and I do not like it.

    Accurate A-Line is the best ski rope I have ever used! Three seasons and counting!
