Rope Socket Swabline Type
• 50% and 90% cutting slips
• Allows the operator to recover cable in a fishing scenario.
Slip type and Clamp type are available for these Rope Sockets.
The Slip Type Rope Sockets are designed to cut the cable internally leaving a clean fishing neck should the tool string become stuck in the well.
