I was home depot today- I saw 12' tow rope which had 3 nylon strands rolled together-dunno, maybe 3/4" diameter

I also saw 20' of yellow chain, looked like it would work too.

Both cost in the neighborhood of $30. Can anyone see any reason why these wouldnt be viable substitutes for manilla rope?

Im sure the metal might get a little slippery if one where sweating, and Im not sure if the metal would be too hard on the hands or not...

Either way, they seemed to be cheap, sturdy substitutes- that could take outside weather as a bonus.

thoughts, ideas, comments?
