    @Horton The extra piece of black rope is the front mainline to complete the 70 foot rope that may be necessary for longline skiers like your self.

    Hmmmm what DOES Horton do with all those boxes???

    Horton is right about changing out your ropes. If your body starts to hurt when skiing or the loops are frayed it is time to change out the rope.

    And too, if you go off the dock at longer line lengths, and you practice on on older rope you go to a tournament running new ropes and you will definitely notice the stretch (some say spongy) feeling of the new rope at say 15 off. It stretches a lot, maybe someone out there has measured it- I love when they have the strain gage (tension) reports in the tournament feeds so it would be interesting to know how much a new Masterline at 15 off stretches with 500 lbs of load ( which I do all the time... well maybe not).

    @Horton In the video you said that old ropes get spongy and are hard on us old guys and I would have thought the reverse that they become cables and brand new ropes are always spongy. Thanks.

    @buoyboy1 Not sure what I said but older ropes get stiffer and have less give. The become cables and that is hard on old bones.

    @rico give Masterline a call. Talk with Randy or Russell or Bob.
