Tempted to buy this as my first rope. Planning on using it mostly on top roped sport routes, eventually some trad stuff. Durability is perhaps the most important factor to me. Should I be looking at another rope?

Top roping tends to put more wear on a rope and if durability is your main concern I would recommend something thicker in diameter, such as 10.0mm-10.5mm. Check out the Sterling Marathon Pro 10.1mm or the Sterling Kosmos 10.2mm. This rope would of course work, but would probably not last as long using it for your intentions.
