    Default Loop Ropes

    I need to get some loop rope. Anyone prefer one type over the other? The loop that my pro shop put on does not seem to want to bite in and stay put. I am not sure which kind it is, but it looks similar to the rope that comes with a limbdriver rest if that helps.

    Thanks!

    Thanks guys. I ordered a foot of BCY and Gibbs Super Loop rope from Lancaster to give them a try. If that does not work...I will break out some super glue.

    Gibbs Super Loop is all I'll use ... They have the only machine that will make it. I just redid the loop on my new (slightly used) Synergy tonight with Gibbs... Perfection!
