“Synthetic Fiber” Ropes:
It may be because it’s sort of a short fibred rope, or it might just be the stuff I got hold of. But every time I’ve used it, whatever I’ve been wearing or my partner has been wearing has wound up dusted in the stuff. It’s easily accessible; cheaper than most bondage ropes, it has decent tooth (essentially, friction; what holds your knots and stuff together), it’s washable, and it’s decently strong. It is possible to dye it. 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. It’s a favourite of Two Knotty Boys; most of their videos depict nylon rope being used. I’ll even include pictures! Aren’t I just the nicest? I’m going to go over the kinds of rope pictured above, from left to right. However, I snapped a couple of pictures of it while I was at Bunnings. I can’t give you as thorough a break down on it, but I made some observations.
Cons. This is a very thin plastic webbing; it is not something you want to get too close to a naked flame, because it will melt. It was very good quality and exactly what I wanted (Esinem Jute). Approximately 100 metres left of my Precious. Research your dye carefully though. Hemp Bondage Rope.
For our purposes though, what’s great about this bondage rope is the way it feels. Which is basically incredibly soft and smooth, but with enough solidity and weight to it to give it a real feeling of authority when you put it around someone’s wrists, legs, what have you. Let’s face it, sometimes the Internet is just more convenient. Next we have a polypropylene webbing. This is another synthetic bondage rope, and has many of the same properties of that rope mentioned immediately above, particularly in regards to friction. However, there are some advantages and improvements with this one which I will go over. Nylon, MFP (multi-fiber propylene), “Mixed Fiber” Rope, Poly-pro, Parachute cord. Pro: Better “tooth”, so it grabs better and takes fewer knots to hold securely.
They’re both technically braided ropes; however the rope on the right seems to have a denser kind of braid, which means it doesn’t have the same issue with the knots compacting down as hard as the stuff from the 1-8 dollar shop. So, interesting learning from that one; denser braid makes for less difficult knots. Relatively easy to unpick. Exactly what I need. So, to sum up the whole post:. But every time I’ve used it, whatever I’ve been wearing or my partner has been wearing has wound up dusted in the stuff. It also makes things more likely to be itchy, sneezy, etc.

Because of the tight construction, it also doesn’t tend to “high strand” or deform with strands moving out of place. You’re going to need knots, which will take a tiny bit longer. It’s not dyeable; you’re stuck with the colour you buy. Depending on the source of your rope, it can be a real pain in the ass of a rope for a beginner, because the knots in what I got from the 1-8 dollar shop compact down like you wouldn’t believe. You can spend ages trying to unpick those things, which leads to swearing and frustration and a general lack of cool.
