When Manila Rope is concerned, the best buy is from the Phillipines. Manila rope is made from Abaca fibers, a plant which is a natural resource of the Phillipines. There could be some other countries producing the same fibers but the quality of Phillipines fibers is beyond comparison. Manila rope has some special features that synthetic rope cannot take place: the texture that gives a firm grip with very little stretch; its knot holds well and will not slide; it has a brilliant natural light tan color and most important of all is it is environmentally friendly. The tensile strength of Manila rope is stronger than Sisal rope. Elongation of Manila rope is very minimal compared to synthetic ropes, which were prone to stretching and breaking.
