Sof' Tug™ Cotton Ropes

Our softest tug-of-war rope!


Students will love the friendly feel and lightweight nature of these easy-to-grip, extremely soft tug-of-war ropes! Three lengths and a Four-Way option—each with a clearly marked halfway point for easy scoring—make it easy to set up small class games or huge field day bouts in just seconds. Machine knotted ends add durability throughout and make anchoring the team easy during intense games.

Friendly Beginner Design

The inherently lightweight nature of cotton lends a huge advantage to younger students just learning the strategy of tug-of-war. Even our largest Sof’ Tug™ rope (100’L) is less than 20 lb, giving students a non-intimidating rope that will help them acclimate quicker to pulling, bracing, and anchoring. Machine woven cotton also provides a supremely comfortable hold that’s both safe and reliable. The diameter of ropes is just 1” in design—great for smaller hands and accommodating of a strong grip.

Durable Construction

Machine-knotted ends offer superior resilience in the face of wear and tear as compared to hand-tied knots, making these beginner tug of war ropes a sustainable investment. Because knots will stay firmly in place there’s no need to worry about rope fraying or unravelling as students give it their all as they pull.

Because cotton fibers are soft and gentle, this rope is also much safer than comparable manila or un-manila ropes. Harsh rope burns and stinging from splintered fibers are virtually eliminated with a cotton construction, keeping students safe as they pull hard.

Four Size Options

Available in 50’, 75’, and 100’L options, as well as a four-way option, it’s easy for teachers to tailor tug-of-war activities to the number of students playing or their skill level. 50’L ropes are great for small class sizes and brand new players, while 100’L ropes accommodate older students or big team battles on field day! The four-way rope option also allows instructors to mix up the fun, creating 2-on-2 matches or strategic free-for-all battles that pair strategy with strength.

Each rope includes a convenient, easy-to-see halfway marker for clear scoring and easier setup. Teachers can quickly identify the halfway point on any size rope to make sure both teams get the appropriate starting length.
