Selling a almost brand new In Tow slalom mainline.
It has only been used for one set.
Mainline has been special ordered in all black with line length markers and 4” loops to fit Malibu pylons.
It comes with the In Tow “rope caddy” and sections from 15’off through 38’off.
Asking $95 shipped to the lower 48’s.

    @DavidN I understand the black mainline, but why black for the line-off sections?

    Personal preference

    So you can feel like a ninja behind the boat!

    I think it is neat, but I know a few of my boat partners would be absolutely lost without color loops and even then it's a struggle some days.

    @DavidN After trying this rope for one set, what is it that you didn't like about it?

    It felt too stiff for me.
    (Used to ski a ML optimized rope which feels more forgiving)
    Thought I might give it a try after reading of many people liking it.

    It’s really not that bad. Just shorten one section a time. ;)
    To be honest, my wife accidentally shortened me once from -28 to -35 with my old (also all black) rope.
    So, yes, boat crew needs to pay a bit more attention, I get that...
    ...and that my color choice is probably a deal breaker for most here.

    @DavidN Makes sense that an In Tow rope would feel more stiff than an ML optimized rope. And yes, that all black color selection is likely going to cause you to have to discount more to sell it. Although, for those of us who played rugby and revere the New Zealand All Blacks, an all black rope could be appealing on that count.

    quick question: I see you have the 4" loops for the larger malibu pylon. how does the ML optimized rope loops fit the malibu pylon? thanks
  • DavidNDavidN Posts: 510 Crazy Baller
    It’s manageable, you have to slide open up the loops a bit prior to slipping them onto the thicker Malibu ball-style pylon. It’s a bit of an hassle, but not too bad, really.
