More important than the rating, you need something with two strands, like a thin jute rope. Single strand twines work most of the time, but they can unravel and pull apart.

Wow, I didn't notice at first that this was in the Hops Growing forum. I just thought it was a totally random and irreverent question. :drunk:

Thanks Dave. I found a roll of Jute twine at Home Depot for something like $5. I will check to see if its 2 strands. I would never have thought of that. Thanks. I do come up with some random stuff llama. Can't deny that. :)

I didn't think of it either. Learned it the hard way in a wind storm.

If you are hand picking , anything will work as long as it is strong enough
