Though this particular model has been discontinued, you can see the results of our rigorous testing and assessment of today's top Climbing Ropes here.
At 9.8 mm and 63 g/m, the Mammut Tusk is the perfect example of an all-around climbing rope. It's not too heavy, not too skinny, and can live up to any task you need it to. It is also a great value, costing only $200 - $220 for a standard 60 meter. This combination of a low price tag and excellent versatility win it our Best Buy Award. For a lighter, skinny rope, we recommend the Sterling Fusion Nano and for a workhorse rope we like the Sterling Marathon Pro or the BlueWater Eliminator.
