Twisted Rope

Twisted rope (also called laid rope) is the most common form of rope worldwide and is usually formed by three strands which are (usually) right laid and finally are given a right-handed twist.

A major benefit of twisted fibre rope over others (e.g. braided rope) is that it can be easily spliced. The rope is used in a massive variety of applications, such as tow ropes and in farms. Twisted rope was traditionally made from Manila, but this can be prone to rot from the inside and not be visible so polyester and synthetic fibers are recommended for heavy-duty lifting purposes.
