    What's the significance of the Telstra certification?

    • +2

      It isn't just any rope - it's Cable hauling Rope.

      Handy in case you want to set up your own Telco or maybe NBN.

      • +4

        Would it be rude to suggest the NBN cancellation is the reason for this bargain?

          Next up: brand new NBN-compatible fibre for sale, only $2 dollars a metre! Grab it and roll your own fibre network, today! (because we can't be bothered to).

      It can be used to tie up the old copper cables to send to a refinery to melt into copper and sell to the Chinese.

    • "Andrew Denton" Group Buy!

  • Great now I don't have to sling the Telstra Technician a bottle of scotch……..

  • Does rope last or dry out after a few years? If it lasts, this might be a good buy to last a decade

      Believe it's Nylon, not plant based so should last.

  • What's the significance of the Telstra certification?

    The Telstra guys leave it in the underground pipes to use when there chasing cable.that's where it gets its name from.

    Oooh… this is a good deal… for my tastes are very…. singular.

    Awesome gives me a budget way to try out Shibari on my other half.

    • Ouch. I don't think Japanese would use anything other than natural fibres for that use. Jute rope has some give, which is much more pleasant;-)

          That, is a porn site for the bondage aficionado. Children, look away :-)

          However, you'll want something thicker than garden twine to suspend your loved one from the ceiling, unless you're into bruises.

  • Have been looking at rope 1 month ago but too expensive at Bunning. Thanks OP.

  • Price is now $44, and shipping to north Queensland is $28.

    • 4 dollars too much :)

    • What couldn't you do?

    Turn it into SIMPSON'S INDIVIDUAL STRINGETTES (Courtesy of Monty Python)

    S: Ah, but there's a snag, you see. Due to bad planning, the hundred and twenty-two thousand miles is in three inch lengths. So it's not very useful.
    W: Well, that's our selling point! 'SIMPSON'S INDIVIDUAL
    S: What?
    W: 'THE NOW STRING! READY CUT, EASY TO HANDLE, SIMPSON'S INDIVIDUAL EMPEROR STRINGETTES - JUST THE RIGHT LENGTH!'
    S: For what?
    W: 'A MILLION HOUSEHOLD USES!'
    S: Such as?
    W: Uhmm…Tying up very small parcels, attatching notes to pigeons' legs, uh, destroying household pests…
    S: Destroying household pests?! How?
    W: Well, if they're bigger than a mouse, you can strangle them with it, and if they're smaller than, you flog them to death with it!
    S: Well surely!….
    W: 'DESTROY NINETY-NINE PERCENT OF KNOWN HOUSEHOLD PESTS WITH PRE-SLICED, RUSTPROOF, EASY-TO-HANDLE, LOW CALORIE SIMPSON'S INDIVIDUAL EMPEROR STRINGETTES, FREE FROM ARTIFICIAL COLORING, AS USED IN HOSPITALS!'
    S: 'Ospitals!?!?!?!!?
    W: Have you ever in a Hospital where they didn't have string!

    • My favourite part was something like

      Stop the floods around the world!

      But it doesn't absorb.
