What would be better for battling ropes? Manila or UNManila?

I searched for it last night, but couldn't find an answer, tonight I got one. UNManila weighs less than regular manila, so the answer is regular old manila is better for battling ropes.

Re: Rope Question

In my experience manila is best for outdoors, the fibers shed and get eeeeverywhere. A lot of guys will even get little manila slivers, real pain in the a$$. If you're after more weight get a 2" thick rope.

Re: Rope Question

What appealed to you about battling ropes?

I've tried it with doubled up 1" rope and got bored pretty quick. Could my set up be at fault?

What did you think battling ropes did that was better than other conditioning tools?

Could be your set up. The old affiliate I went to had some and after doing a tabata workout on it I was sold. Watched some videos that have said it to be a GREAT tool so I thought why knot?

(I'm so phunny. )

Plus I'm going to use it to pull in some weights on a sled type device and so the 60' will be great for that as well.
