Best Magnet Fishing Rope – BoatTector 3/8″ Anchor Line with Thimble
In my opinion, the best Magnet Fishing rope is a 3/8 thick Anchor rope. It fits good in your hands while you are pulling it out of the water. It has a bit of a”glossy” surface so it’s easy to clean.
The breaking strength are a LOT higher than a normal Paracord 550 and so is the price tho. But those extra $10-12 are totaly worth it when you don’t need to be afraid to lose your magnet.
Length of the rope
You don’t want a magnet fishing rope to be too short. I always go with 100feet ropes, even tho you’re not able to throw the magnet that far. The reason for this is that if you get stuck with your magnet on a rock or something, you will be able to walk with the rope and try to pull the magnet from a different angle to get it loose.
Breaking strenght and load
There is a big difference between the breaking strength and max load. The breaking strength, is actually when the rope breaks in the middle by tension. When you are doing knots on the rope, it gets weaker in these areas. So that´s why a Paracord 550 (550 lbs breaking strenght) are a lot more risky to use.
Whith this rope with a thimble, you dont need to make those scary knots and you get a high breaking strength of 1290 lbs. Thats more than the double of a Paracord 550.
