Pros Durable sheath, supple feel, soft catches, saves some weight over thicker workhorsesDurable, excellent feel and handle, soft catchesLight, durable, super soft and supple handleGreat handling, durableEco friendly, nice handle, super light, triple rated, uncoils perfectly from the bag
Cons Middle marker wears out quickly, still heavier than thinner ropesPriceyNot durable enough for heavy duty sport climbing, a lot of stretch when secondingHeavy for the diameter, high impact force ratingExpensive, dry coating wears off sheath quickly, a tad stiff
Bottom Line No rope does a better job of including all the attributes we want – durability, soft but safe catches, great handling, and all at a reasonable priceAn excellent rope that is durable, the perfect diameter for all styles of climbing, and handles greatExcellent handling and not too thick, this rope is an ideal choice to shed some weightGreat for sport climbing and advanced climbersAn eco friendly and surprisingly durable skinny rope that is light and can handle some abuse
