I agree.   Our new set of ropes at Swan Bells started falling apart 
below the sally within the first year after intallation.   I know our 
bells are very heavily used, but we don't alter ropes-ends unless 
absolutely necessary, no ropes-end goes through a ceiling boss and they 
all fall on apure (Australia!) wool carpet.   We are negotiating with 
the manufacturer!
