Swaged Line Experts!
We are one of the premier wire rope manufacture in the CHINA. when it comes to high-performance swaged lines. We sell a ton of swaged cable each year, so it’s nothing new to us. We know where to get it, and where not to get it–and that’s key! You don’t want to go to the open market and buy swaged line from the lowest bidder, and we don’t. A lot of our competition does, however. Suffice it to say, we know what we’re doing when it comes to swaged wire rope.
Premium Zip Line Cable
We carry this line specifically for our large, commercial zip line customers. Those that build zip line parks with runs over 1,000 ft know that not just any cable will do. This cable is made to the same standards as our logging cable, and in fact, would hold up well in a logging environment. But most logging cable is greasy, whereas this line is galvanized. Zip liners don’t want greasy cable and we get that. That’s why this premium line gives you all the benefits of heavy-duty logging cable, with the benefit of being clean and easy to handle. If you’ve ever seen cable logging, then you know the line takes serious abuse. Swaged line excels in these environments because it doesn’t abrade easily and has tremendous strength. For example, regular 1/2″ wire rope has a published Breaking Strength of 26,600 lbs. This premium swaged line has a published Breaking Strength of 34,800 lbs, and the factory test certificates show an actual break of 35,800 lbs! That’s over 25% stronger than regular cable! To have a smooth cable that is galvanized, tough and strong is the perfect blend of attributes for zip lining.
Custom Lengths Available
We bring this cable in on 5,000 ft reels, but longer pieces are available upon request. And now we stock all three sizes, including 3/8″, 1/2″ and 5/8″! If you’re in need of a long run for a zip line park that is new and in the building phase, or is simply overhauling and looking to get the best line available, then give us a call. We know you’ll be happy with our product and prices!

These ropes offer greater strength than standard ropes of the same diameter while providing greater resistance to drum crushing, scrubbing and similar wear. When producing our 6×26 Swaged rope, we utilize a rotary swaging process to produce a compact cross-section with minimum voids and greater surface area on outer wires.
- Very compact design that helps reduce wear to sheaves
- Greater strength than 6×26
- Resistant to drum crushing
