Have a question. Need to buy a new slalom rope. I once bought a rope that said it had takeoffs for line lengths but unfortunately, the line lengths did not match up at all to AWSA lengths. If I buy a rope from Overtons or Barts that says AWSA approved or meets AWSA standards does that automatically mean it has the correct line lengths? Also, what do I get with a 10 section line or a 8 section line?

Lets dont call them "rainbow ropes" that could be misconstrued like the "tranny" thread :D One thread was enough for me!! :D

Want an accurate rope for the course any ideas?

A rope is a rope...unless you are being serious and it sounds like you are...then go buy a fancy one.

This rope will exceed your needs but last a long time.

The 10 section has a few more lloops to remove versus the 8 section. No offense intended, but you'll probably be fine with the 8 section.

As I said there I highly reccomend Brenda at In-Tow. Great ropes at great prices.

unless your rippin 41 off the 8 section will be fine.

Sometimes she is a bit hard to get a hold of. Try her after 1pm Mountain time. Also I think you can leave a message and she will get back to you.
