Had the Supernova for a while now. It's seen substantial action at the local stuff in SLO, Joshua Tree, and Red Rocks. It's just starting to show a little fuzz. For the price, you can't beat it. It's a mule of a rope and center marked to boot. It isn't rated for as many falls as some others of its size, but how many UIAA falls are you gonna take?

Also, it's surprisingly easy to control, even when it was new. It glides through my ATC and/or GriGri without any grief and rarely wants to kink.

I like the's pretty respectable and good enough. Most of the time I coil the rope and cinch it onto my climbing pack and then stuff the bag inside the climbing pack (I'd rather carry one bag instead of two) for local or single pitch stuff so I can still use the tarp. Multi-pitch stuff I leave the bag behind. Plus, it gives me something to store the rope in and what have you.

I'd get this rope again and I'd recommend it to anybody.
