A kinetic energy recovery rope (KERR), Bubba Rope® provides superior performance, strength and durability that goes way beyond typical recovery ropes, snatch straps and chains. It stretches and actively uses its own kinetic energy to help get your stuck vehicle moving.
Bubba Rope® is actually three ropes in one: An inner nylon core, braided looser to absorb more of the lower loads, an outer nylon jacket braided tighter for higher loads and then the whole rope is dipped in a polymetric base giving it a protective shell.
Bubba Rope® professional snatch ropes are the strongest and safest of their kind, beating any strap for vehicle recovery. Developed with military-spec quality and strength, these recovery ropes surpass other solutions due to their unique kinetic properties and polymer coating. Our ropes are inspected and tested for both quality and breaking strengths on certified test beds at our factory
Bubba Rope® is a tougher kind of recovery rope developed from military specs for safely pulling off-road vehicles out of mud, sand or snow. It is the only snatch rope with a polymer coating.
- 100% double braided nylon rope
- Urethane Polymer coating
- Commercially spliced and seized at both ends
- Water proof, UV and abrasive resistant
- Highest breaking strengths available
Bubba Rope® has the strength and durability beyond typical recovery ropes, snatch straps and chains with all the kinetic characteristics of a superior snatch rope.
Nylon Double Braid is the preferred choice for applications requiring high strength with excellent shock absorbing properties.

Breaking strengths are determined in accordance with Cordage Institute 1500, test methods for Fiber Rope.
Double braid has good resistance to abrasion, sunlight and chemicals. However, with extended immersion in water, nylon ropes products will lose up to 10% of their strength.
With our polymer coating, Bubba Ropes extend the above positive properties ten fold and gives the added water resistance property to maintain specified breaking strengths.
Each Bubba Rope is hand crafted and built in our factory in Tampa, Florida. The eyes or loops of ropes are specified to be longer and stronger than other recovery ropes. To add to the strength of the eye we use 50% more material in our splicing and add a strong seizing derived from actual Military specifications.
All ropes are dipped in a polymer base giving the ropes a protective covering and impregnating the nylon fibers, leaving them strong yet flexible.
All ropes are inspected before packaging and shipping.
Beware of Black Rope Fakes: black nylon double braid products are normally 10% below published specifications. - Cordage Institute 1500
Bubba Ropes are NOT made from black nylon double braid; instead they are white nylon fibers dipped in a polymer base that is dyed black. Therefore the breaking strength of a Bubba Rope is never compromised.
