Bubba Rope is more than just a recovery rope!

Looking for the best in recovery ropes? Bubba rope has the answer. Many of the recovery ropes, straps and chains that you see on the market today will do the job, but have their downfalls. Ropes and straps can fray and lose their strength over time due to the exposure to water, mud and the sun. Tow chains are heavy, take up a lot of storage room and can be unsafe if not used correctly.

Bubba Rope is a one of a kind tow and recovery rope that is adapted from military specifications. Bubba rope uses a 100% double braided nylon rope that is dipped in a polymer base. This coating provides the recovery rope with a uv protected, water resistant, and abrasion resistant protection. The polymer base coating will give your rope a much longer life span that other ropes on the market that do not offer this protection.

Bubba Rope Bubba rope also offers extra protection by coating the eyes of the recovery rope with a tough polymer coating. This coating is applied to the wear points of the rope and will prolong the life of your tow rope. They refer to this coating of the wear points as Gator-ized, as it looks and acts like the tough skin found on an alligator.

Bubba Rope has sizes and break strengths for just about every application.
