Making cowstails.. Rope age question

(1/9) > >>

benshannon:
I want to make some cowstails and I have a climbing rope in the loft that I haven't used for ~10years. It never took a big fall, but I appreciate I shouldn't use it for climbing anymore, would it be OK as cows tails or is there an age of rope that you should not use despite it not having much use over its life?

langcliffe:
It's the sort of stuff that I make mine of!

ChrisJC:
Given you can buy brand new rope for £2/meter, why faff about with some dodgy old baler twine?

Chris.

Ian Ball:
Personally I would say don't fall on it and you'll be fine.

???? - Beale say 15 years, and that will be conservative.
