Rope For Sale!
Now Available Via my Etsy Store!
See Below for Details.
How Do All ;-)

Below is a list of rope I have that I am looking to give a new home to. The reason for selling is that I need to make space, and I no longer have a need for so much stock.

Most of this rope is brand new and is full 220m coils which have not been opened!
I have noted below any coils that I have used rope from and exactly how much I used, I keep notes of pretty much every thing ;-)

The prices below are the same price or less than the original trade prices I paid, including the VAT. I have reduced the prices for any coils I have used cord off of, taking the amount into account.

These items will be sent via courier unless otherwise stated in the text!
