A tough line born for hard work, the HeftyFlex rigging line makes a great nucleus for any serious rigging kit with its high breaking strain and excellent durability. This bullrope features a Technaglide coating that is designed to maximise pulley efficiency and also give excellent water repellency. The coating also has the added benefit of ensuring great flexibility for the lifespan of the rope. HeftyFlex ropes perform well in a variety of rigging scenarios including lifting, lowering or pulling, thanks to the low stretch characteristics and soft, flexible handling even over extended use.

6 reviews for Harkie HeftyFlex Rigging Rope, 16mm

  1. Canopy Climbing Collective

    Thoroughly recommend.

  2. Canopy Climbing Collective

    Great rigging rope, used it heaps and loving it so far.

  3. Canopy Climbing Collective

    Great stuff, great rope, highly recommend.

  4. Canopy Climbing Collective

    I’m liking the rope more and more.

  5. Kevin Knight

    Probably my favourite rigging rope I’ve ever used. Runs so smoothly through the lowering device, giving you limitless control on even the largest of sections. Runs through your hands smoothly and has great visibility due to the colour.

  6. Patryk Zietarski

    Flexibility is outstanding which makes it very easy to tie knots, and also works superbly during larger dismantles allowing to climber to tie off bigger sections. Down sides are because the design of the rope not having a central core I assume there is no way of having it spliced and also we found that it frays very easily because it’s quite a soft rope it catches on the locking gate of ( Big Dans) large metal carabineers. Overall score 8-10

Innovation 2 Smock

I have had my Harkie Smock for seven years. Worn every wet day and it has stood up to all the abuse of arb that I have thrown at it and it is still fully waterproof.
