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. (Updated 2018)Look, this is probably my favourite all round rope, with that Twisted Monk hemp as the favorite for bedroom purposes. Tossa jute is just freaking amazing, and has given me very much the results that I wanted, when I wanted them. 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. Nothing I’ve done to it has fixed this. It may be because it’s sort of a short fibred rope, or it might just be the stuff I got hold of. I don’t actually own any of this stuff, because I’ve never felt the need. I had my Zen rope for quick synthetic ties, and I later moved on to focus on natural fibres.
Very washable. Cons:. It’s not dyeable; you’re stuck with the colour you buy. The combination of the lack of weight and the lack of friction means it’s going to slide a bit over skin. It works well for bedroom bondage, but I wouldn’t put it under heavy load. Due to that same lack of friction as mentioned above, you can’t really use hitches or friction based means to lock off tension the way you can with natural fibre ropes of greater tooth.
It’s a favourite of Two Knotty Boys; most of their videos depict nylon rope being used. Good flex and texture. Again, this is related to the lack of friction. This is pretty cool because you don’t get bulky, unsightly looking knots. Bondage rope and what kind of rope is best for bondage? This is the kind of question I come across all the time on rope bondage groups and at beginners workshops. And the answer is, inevitably (drum-roll please):. 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.
Pros. It’s very light, very smooth, very fast. If you like shopping on the internet for your rope (either because it’s hard to find cotton rope near you or because you prefer your bondage gear to arrive in anonymous parcels), then you can buy cotton rope here instead. Let’s face it, sometimes the Internet is just more convenient. 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.
Yes, I had to break it in fairly extensively; but once that was done, it’s always served me well. It looks great on a person, particularly after it’s shined up, and is just a really sweet, responsive rope that does pretty much whatever I ask of it. There is another type of cotton rope I’ve seen, which I picked up at a Mitre 10 a couple years back for fairly cheap. I’ve included a picture for reference, so you can distinguish between the two.

However, once I removed the core, that changed things considerably (If you want to know how to remove the core, send me a message or something and I’ll update). Pros. In general, most synthetic ropes are like that, to one level or another. This is actually a hollow braid kind of rope; meaning it’s a polypropylene braid wrapped around a core of something.
