China Zipline Wire Rope: Some types of cable are only galvanize after the cable has been spun together. China does not have any standard or regulations over quality control. They don't have anyone inspecting the cable after it has been dipped and galvanized to make sure it meets specifications. China Zipline cable will rust sooner, break quicker, and not provide the long term stability for longer or heavier ziplining cable.
Korean Zipline Wire Rope: Korean Zipline cable is made to a high standard. Each strand of cable is individually galvanized before it is spun together. This insures a better resistant to rust and other harsh elements. Korea has a high standard and regulations on their quality control, each spool of cable is individually inspected to make sure it meets all specifications. We recommend Korean zipline cable over Chinese zipline cable for these very reasons.
BEWARE of sites selling cheap zipline cable, always make sure it says Korean.
