Answered: Unbraiding Rope

<R7> Robots are allowed the following additional “non-VEX” components:
k. An unlimited amount of 1/8”, braided, nylon rope

I was wondering, is it legal to “unbraid” any 1/8" nylon rope and use the strands?
Can we “unbraid” the string that comes with the winch kit?

Yes, this is legal. However, it’s up to you to make sure the inspectors can tell that your unbraided rope was in fact legal 1/8", braided, nylon rope.
