I've tried searching the forums, internet, and YouTube - but I can't find the exact kind of rope I need to buy to practice knot tying for the BRC/BRPC.

Does anyone remember?

I would like to know the length, type, and thickness.

An Amazon link or link to a store would be greatly appreciated.

Static Kernmantle rope cut into 12-15 foot lengths. They’re about 11mm in diameter and 6,500lb test.

Reference the HRST publication for knots. Find a paraloft on whatever base youre on and ask for a “sling rope.”

Not that it is really important but my rope is 11.5” in length and like .8” in thickness.

Out of interest, what knots are you required to learn?

There are twelve knots you are taught in BRPC.

JOINING:
Square knot
Water tape
Double sheets bend

ANCHORING:
Bowline around an object
Four finger prusiks secured with a bowline
Clove hitch

MIDDLE OF THE LINE:
Bowline on a bite
Figure eight loop

SPECIALTY:
Directional figure eights
Safety line
Repel seat

I can’t think of the last specialty knot at the moment.

I learned all those in Sea Explorers. Except the rappel seat. That one I learned from the Army.
