*Manila rope is generally used where its strength is adequate. It consists of fiber especially selected for pliability and strength.

~Marline-clad wire rope is stronger than manila rope of the same diameter. It consists of five 19-wire strands of improved plow-steel rope, marline covered.

Nylon, plastic, or other synthetic ropes that stretch excessively should not be used.
