Worked Great.

Easy to use. Stopped rope ends from unraveling. Useful when making up dock lines, anchor lines and when preparing lengths of rope to keep handy on the boat.

This stuff is painted on a line, supposedly sealing the fibers so they don't fray. However, it goes on like latex paint, and does not soak easily into the fibers, so it does not seal the line very well. Also, it dries like latex paint, meaning the outside dries while the inside stays gooey. The instructions are not that clear, but if you use it, try to work the stuff into the line, then let it dry for a long time, and then do two more coats before cutting the line. Cut with a VERY sharp blade or you will disturb the fibers, and DEFINITELY soak the end in the sealant again, and then let it dry for several days. Carpenter's glue works about as well.

      Comments about Liquid Rope Whipping:

      Taping the line with electrical tape and cutting through the tape seem to be just as good as dipping it in the whipping. I think I would rather go old school with the thread and needle.

        Used this product to seal off a splice of three strand rope to 1/4" anchor chain. Worked as advertised.

              Sure beats the heck out of manually whipping ends of ropes. Great for stopping fraying.
