    Hello !

    questions concerning nylon rope ...

    Note: (R7: k. An unlimited amount of 1/8”, braided, nylon rope)

    are teams allowed to use nylon rope without the winch and pully kit?

    with nylon rope, i can't find it on the VEX Store ? so where can i get it ? and what is the exact specification, is it 1/8" Diameter ?

    also any ideas if the following situation would be legal:

    So there is an arm and the base, to stop the arm from going too far, could you in theory tie one end of the rope to the arm and then the other end to the base, so the arm could only lift as high as the length of string.

    Thanks

    Hi Liam,
    I've moved this thread into the official VRC Toss Up Q&A, since I think an official ruling from the GDC is appropriate for your question.

    Sorry for the delay in getting your answer.

    @e-LEMON-ators_5119z Hello !

    questions concerning nylon rope ...

    are teams allowed to use nylon rope without the winch and pully kit?

    Yes, you can use any 1/8", braided, nylon rope, with or without the winch and pulley kit.

    @e-LEMON-ators_5119z with nylon rope, i can't find it on the VEX Store ?

    This is correct, similar to lexan, it is legal for competition use, however we do not sell it.

    @e-LEMON-ators_5119z so where can i get it ?

    You should be able to find it at most hardware stores, as well as hobby stores.

    @e-LEMON-ators_5119z and what is the exact specification, is it 1/8" Diameter ?

    1/8”, braided, nylon rope.

    @e-LEMON-ators_5119z also any ideas if the following situation would be legal:

    So there is an arm and the base, to stop the arm from going too far, could you in theory tie one end of the rope to the arm and then the other end to the base, so the arm could only lift as high as the length of string.

    There are no rules preventing this action, thus it is legal.
