The advantages of good 1/2" double braid rope for a tram
1) Plenty strong - 10,000 lb breaking strength, 2400 lb.
2) Has a *small* amount of stretch available, which acts to
load under shock.
3) Is much easier to work with compared to steel.
4) Because it is non conductive, antennas can be tuned while
Case closed, as far as I'm concerned...
