Under normal use and non-emergency weather conditions, high quality flagpole halyard or pull rope shouldn’t fray for a long time. If flagpole rope starts to fray within the first year after installation, it’s important that you determine the precise reason to prevent breakage and flag damage:
Mismatched rope: Generic, natural fiber rope frays faster than tightly braided, polyester or nylon rope specifically designed to act as flagpole halyard.
Surface friction: Halyard that rubs against a rough or edged surface eventually frays. Friction fraying happens faster when halyard rubs against rust spots, paint flakes or wood splinters on older, non-aluminum flagpoles.
