We love Galvanized Aircraft Cable.  It's a great choice for any zip line application because it's incredibly strong but still flexible enough to work with. This type of cable is our first choice when it comes to building a zip line.

  • 7x19 construction (7 groups of wires, with 19 wires per group)
  • Works for back yards and for commercial applications

When ordering raw cable by the foot, the swaged loop on one end is not included.  If you need custom lengths of the same size cable, please make sure you notate the required lengths in the "Order Special Instructions" box in your shopping cart.  Make sure your notes are there when you proceed to payment.   Notes will automatically delete if you navigate out of the shopping cart to continue shopping.

To account for sag and set-up ease we recommend grabbing at least 10-FT more than you need to complete the run.

Weight Consideration:   Due to the weight of the 3/8" cable, our regular shipping option is maxed out with 580 FT.  If you would like your zip line to be longer than this, please call us (541-916-4461) for a Freight Quote.


We try to ship every order on the same day we receive it, however
there is a cut-off time for same-day shipping.  Your order must be received by 12:30pm PST, Monday through Friday, in order to ship the same day. 

Orders received after the cut-off time will ship the next business day.  Call us if you have questions about shipping.
