When you are looking for a quality anchor rope, it can be a bit confusing because of the different braids and materials out there. We will put your mind at ease when you purchase our Fish Fighter™ FFP3875™ Solid Braid Anchor Rope. This anchor rope is strong, yet lightweight and soft. The shock-absorbing elasticity of cord allows it to withstand great strain, while its solid-braided construction stays round. Our Fish Fighter™ FFP3875™ Anchor Line is very flexible and easy to knot. It is very soft in your hand, but offers great grip. This is the rope we use on our 23ft Precision Weld, Diesel Powered Jet Boat “Fish Fighter 2.” We have fished all over the Northwest using this rope, and have had zero failures or regrets. From anchoring in Hells Canyon, to the Columbia River — this rope gets the job done. It’s very hard to tell you what size of rope to use, but our boat weighs around 6,500lbs loaded, and this 3/8” rope works great. It has a breaking strength of 2,800lbs and is designed to resist rot, mildew, abrasions and most chemicals.
Rope selection Guidelines:
· Boat Length: 19ft to 26ft — Use FFP3875 Single Braid 3/8” Anchor Rope (2,800lb Break Strength)
· Boat Length: 27ft to 30ft — Use FFP500 Single Braid 1/2” Anchor Rope (4,200lb Break Strength)
· Boat Length: 22ft to 32ft — Use FFP Ultimate Double Braid 3/8” Anchor Rope (4,625 Break Strength)
It’s very hard to tell you what size rope to use, because of so many factors: From river currents, to the size and weight of boat you have. We recommend that you use the lightest rope, with the lowest break strength you can. The guidelines shown are just guidelines. We recommend that you give your local Coast Guard or local Boat Dealer a call, and ask them for their recommendations.
Note: 1/2″ Rope is no longer available for sale. We decided to discontinue the 1/2″, as the 3/8″ Double Braid Rope outperformed the 1/2″ rope in every category and is much more popular with fishermen.
