Fast Back Ropes is excited to announce the release of a new core rope this summer. After enlisting the help of customers and fans on social media, the name, “Cobalt” was chosen. Cobalt, a chemical element, is valued for its wear resistance and ability to retain its strength at high temperatures. These characteristics describe the durability seen during the extensive testing of this rope.
The Cobalt is similar in diameter to the popular Excalibur. The Cobalt will likely appeal to ropers who prefer more tip weight and less body or bounce.
“The Cobalt is an aqua blue, a highly requested color by our customers and endorsees,” explains Coy Upchurch, Fast Back General Manager. “The combination of poly and dyed nylon has resulted in a highly durable rope. Our goal is always to build a durable rope that feels good and retains that great feel run after run. The Cobalt has surpassed our expectations.”
