It starts at 18.25m and can be shortened to 9.25m. Its looped construction at 18.25m and 16m allows for easy removal of unused sections for the professional and large end loop for easy handle attachments. Each rope is hand braided and pre-stretched to ensure tournament readiness and maximum performance. Please allow approximately 1 week for production for this reason.
