LoopRope 5' Buoy Rope - 2 Pack


#1

#2

I’m thinking about buying this as a gift for my parents who own a 30’ motor boat (two outboards)

Does anyone have any reviews of these? Are they worth a purchase?


#3

As far as rope goes, this is some. There’s some discussion at this past Sport.Woot, but rope is rope. Word is, the past Wooters are using it to tie stuff.


#4

Here’s some reviews at Amazon as well, 2 reviews, 5 stars: http://www.amazon.com/LoopRope-5BRB-P-C-BuoyRope-Blue-Docking/product-reviews/B004YD5K54/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_img?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

I don’t know if it is good when it says you can use it for tying boats and stuff, but the picture only shows hanging light weight fishing poles…


#6

I suppose you could use it to hang bats and clubs during the zombie apocalypse if you don’t dig fishing.


#7

Can I use this to climb back up the fiscal cliff?


#8

The price on Amazon is $17.99, just like Woot is charging now.

C’mon Woot!


#9

It appears that the one at Amazon is a 1 pack?


#10

Yea, this is a Two pack… Amazon is selling them as a single…

I bought these last time they were up. I have a 22 ft center console boat docked in salt water.

The good - they make tying off a little faster.

The bad - they are not ropes, they are made from stretchable bungie chord material.

The unknown - how long they will last in salt air. While I am using them, I don’t have enough confidence in bungie material to hold my 4500 lb boat to the dock overnight. I’ve had bungie chords break before, I still use real dock ropes so I don’t lose my boat.


#12

So this is the second sport.woot today… but it’s not pindicated as part of the woot-off. Is sport.woot part of the woot-off?


#13

No, but there were two sellout deals yesterday. I think when something sells out, woot is putting up a new item instead of waiting till midnight.


#14

I bought a bunch of these last time and I am happy with them. Think of them as adjustable-length bungee cords. They are not rope. You do not want to tie a boat to it.


#15

Sure hope these dont SUCK! Seemed like the best P-O-S out for me today.
In for one
