I have been meaning to post about this topic since I too have been looking for ropes and posts.
I seached the web and went all the way to the end to find a vendor who has a reasonable price on this stuff.
I found only two places which had good prices. I went with
They have the best selection at a good price. I ordered over the net and received the product in 8 days. Great service.
The quality is great and the total cost was about half as much as one of those specialty HT outfits. What a rip off. I plan to order more product soon.
I originally purchaced the product about a month ago. I ordered two short ropes, two wall connectors and one metal satin post and paid $245 delivered. I figured it would cost about $475 for basicly the same thing with a HT outfit.
I don't remember the name of the other place with similar prices but they didn't have much of a selection.
