    Hello, is anyone else finding that their ropes are becoming very springy in this hot weather? We are noticing it with our tenor (11 1/2 cwt with a long draught and a hemp rope). It is becoming quite hard to ring. Our other bells, with poly top ends, are fine.
    Thanks, Barbara

    It usually depends who made them. I found one firm used to make ropes that were terrible - always springy particularly in the Sally, l although I never noticed a seasonal difference. That firm used to wind losley so inguess if ut was very dry and fibers might contract and increase spring. The best ropes I have found are Avon and i suggest getting some better quality ones.
