They won't let you into heaven if you use the cheap plastic sleeves. You'll meet St Peter, Allah or Budda at the gate, all of which have an ownership interest is Sawyer.

The plastic sleeves were an ok deal when they were $3.50. Now that they are $15 or some other extraordinary price, you can trade up for quality. 52 ft of rope can be acquired for sub $5. The value of having black rope wraps....
Priceless! Or white

The key to a good rope wrap is the rope sawyer uses, I have seen it done over and over by people. The rope squishes, or gets soggy,frays , drags etc. Sawyer has special rope for that and it works for years, I have some of the first test square tops from like 8 or 9 years ago still going strong, before square tops were cool and everyone east of Oregon thought they discovered something new about 4 years later

There is a little company in NC that furnishes my rope wound in any color or yarn. Better yet it is domestic and 2500 ft will get you a respectable price. I personally prefer the braded black Nylon set in an epoxy base layer.

The reason they call it buzz is to generate buzz. My mission is to create counter buzz. A flip side negative argument supplied to foreign goods and services. It's all about the propaganda.
