Dynasorb Energy-Absorbing Rigging Line ( Polydyne )

What have we learned about energy absorption when it comes to dynamic activities that test the limits of ropes and wood? For one, we’ve learned that tensile strength alone is not all it’s cracked up to be. For example, no one needs to spell out the result of bungee jumping using high-strength cable instead of (significantly weaker) elastic rope. Although an extreme example, the physics are virtually identical when arresting other falling loads, including tree parts. No, not because the load shouldn’t be injured, rather to lessen forces capable of cracking an anchor point or snapping high-strength ropes. Not only are such shattering forces the inspiration for modern tree cabling systems like Cobra and TreeSave, but they are also the reason many arborists are choosing Dynasorb for wood-dropping activities, too.

In another example, Jamie Goddard of Yale Cordage recently demonstrated on video a drop test using a 220-pound weight tethered first with dynamic (elastic) line and then with static (nonelastic) line. Tensile strength of the dynamic line was 3 tons, while the static line was 10 tons. The dynamic line arrested the weight six times without failure, while the static line snapped on the first drop.

Dynasorb ( aka Polydyne ) is not drastically different from other arborist-grade rigging lines, only a smidge more elastic, about 3% within working-load range. The first to really tell the difference (especially when there’s ample line in a system) will be the climber. If managed with a lowering device from below, the impact will be noticeably softer. The groundsman operating the lowering device will feel little difference as well if letting the load run properly, but in the event of yanking it to a stop, the difference can be dramatic. Dynasorb’s secret is in the core. Inside is a special blend of high-strength nylon built to come back to shape again and again for unbelievable rigging performance, while the outside feels much the same as other arborist-grade rigging lines. Dynasorb is jacketed in 100% high-tenacity polyester and is Maxijacket-coated for excellent abrasion resistance.

Fantastic rigging line. Very user friendly. The more broken in it gets, the more I like it. I use this line to rig out tops with the triple x ring sling and they go hand in hand for simple quick and easy. (Posted on 9/29/2015)

This stuff rocks especially when you have a short run or greenhorn on the wrap... Have used this line to pull trees for directional felling... it literally had the tires spinning on a 2500HD Silverado locked in 4 low.... that's impressive strength for on half and inch... (Posted on 5/14/2014)

Nice rope, good stretch for those long multi. rigging locations in tree. Took a little while to breakin, however once it is great knot holding. The cost and WLL is worth the price (it replaces other 1/2 and 9/16") (Posted on 12/21/2013)

I do knotless rigging and dynasorb ropes with the eyes spliced into the ends is the ticket for safe and efficient rigging. It's all I use. (Posted on 12/16/2013)

Good product, great shock absorbing capabilities, excellent knotability. My only beef with this rope was that the ends unravel quickly. I've used this rope a dozen times and I've already had to whip the ends. (Posted on 1/12/2012)
