    In <R15> b. the game manual states "Teams are permitted to fuse/melt the end of the 1/8” nylon rope to prevent fraying" but I could not find "Rope" as a legal part for the VEX robot. Can 1/8" rope be used on the robot and if so what is the length limit?

    Thanks

    The legal 1/8" rope is the rope that is included as part of the VEX Winch and Pulley kit:

    This rope comes in 4' (1.22 m) lengths.
