Hemp will do the job, and do it well – but you might want to source it from a known and trusted supplier, as opposed to an anonymous source (a “learn from my mistakes” moment! ) I’ve found hemp to be very different depending on where I got it from – and my Twisted Monk stuff is actually really up there

Pros:. This is a twisted rope; it gives you different kind of rope marks than braids do, and has a different sort of aesthetic to it. Yes, I had to break it in fairly extensively; but once that was done, it’s always served me well. It looks great on a person, particularly after it’s shined up, and is just a really sweet, responsive rope that does pretty much whatever I ask of it. That said, for restraint, this will generally get the job done. The knots used in the single column and two column ties which I posted about earlier will do a solid job of holding things in place, but feel free to use anything that isn’t a slip knot. It is by far the cheapest useful rope I’ve ever come across. Pros:. Somewhat pricey, it comes in a variety of lays (“lay” refers to how tightly it’s twisted together). The tighter the lay, the stiffer and more durable the rope tends to be.

Jute makes for extremely good photos in it’s un-dyed state. It generally has very clean lines, and has a sort of compelling aesthetic to it which honestly can make a person fall in love with it. The stuff I got from Twisted Monk is a very different story. Once I finally ordered some, I had a very different experience; which just goes to show, the supplier makes a huge difference in the quality of the rope you get. Pros:. This is a twisted rope; it gives you different kind of rope marks than braids do, and has a different sort of aesthetic to it.

Con: Stretches in inconsistent/unpredictable ways. Not recommended for suspension. That stuff is vastly overpriced for what it is. A Bunnings, Mitre 10, or other hardware store will have you covered for most things; the Internet will get the rest. Summary:.

What type of rope is best for you? I have some recommendations above, under “What type of rope should I use? ”, but here are some qualtiies that will let you understand why I made those recommendations and let you better decide for yourself. “Natural Fiber” Ropes:.

5 millimetre tossa jute. Pros:. I don’t actually own any of this stuff, because I’ve never felt the need. I had my Zen rope for quick synthetic ties, and I later moved on to focus on natural fibres. Excellent give and flex, and there’s something truly awesome about the way it moves in your hands and when you’re wrapping it around someone. It makes the experience of tying someone a lot more fun.

In general, most synthetic ropes are like that, to one level or another. This is actually a hollow braid kind of rope; meaning it’s a polypropylene braid wrapped around a core of something. (If you don’t, your partner may be able to manipulate the tie and wriggle out, and rope bottoms kind of hate that. Knowing they cannot escape tends to be part of what does it for them…). Pros. It’s very light, very smooth, very fast. And naturally I’ll tell you which are my favorites and why, but at the end of the day I’ll leave you to make up your own mind, based on your own sets of priorities, which may very well be different from mine. I’ll even include pictures! Aren’t I just the nicest? It was very good quality and exactly what I wanted (Esinem Jute). Approximately 100 metres left of my Precious.
