Hello Solytrain,

It sounds like over the years you've used a variety of isokinetic trainers... exergenie, isorobic, etc.

I'm guessing that undoubtedly you've had frayed ropes you had to train out.

It seems like the replacement ropes are crazy expensive....

What kind of rope material have you used to replace frayed ropes?

Thanks for any help with this question.

Hey chuckh, believe it or not if you want to replace with an actual exergenie rope cheaper then buying a replacement rope is to buy a whole used model on eBay for about 40 bucks, but I found a rope supplier that has types that work, I don't know how to put up links, bit I'll ask them

Hi Chuck,

I know you have a new model Exer-Genie. Are you already having trouble with the rope fraying?

Greg - no. I can see the wear already and a nick or two (not sure how I did that) but it was more for information purposes.

Also, I had toyed with the idea of using the harness to do some "resistance walking" for more than just the length of the usual rope if I could a) find a cheap used exergenie/isorobic etc on ebay and 2) find an equivalent rope but in a longer length.

Hi chuckh, I buy my ropes at www.knotandrope.com , you order the double braided nylon rope (many colors) 1/4 inch, I paid for 20 feet about $10+$8 shipping, hippie this helps

One suggestion Chuck - if you use the stirrup handles, get rid of the clips. I noticed they nicked the rope. You can loop the handles through the rope and over again by the round piece of metal that the clips attach too.

Greg,

Yes, that is probably exactly what happened! I use those handles for alternating punches and rows with the resistance setting real low and in multiple sets.

I'll have to try that ... never thought of that before. I am still trying to envision it actually!

And I also see that the price Exergenie charges is NOT just for the short length of rope. It's a huge length of rope I have learned.

That makes sense because Mr. Warren has been EXCELLENT to deal with and when their harness didn't fit, he got my measurements and had one made for no extra charge. The man has been a real prince! It will hopefully be here soon!
