Not as Durable As I Would Like

The hand of this rope is great. It knots easily and securely and is soft and supple without feeling limp in your hand while clipping. It feels a bit slippery when brand new, but quickly breaks into a great feel. The only downside is the durability. The sheath starts to fray very quickly and the rope seems to attract dirt more than others, even with the Dry coating. Overall, a great all-around rope, but keep it in a rope bag and leave it at home when toproping.

Responded on

Soft and supple is the opposite of this rope.. It is stiffer than any other rope I've used, except maybe some of the ones in my climbing gym. Not that I mind, I like the stiffness, but I don't want to mislead people. Agreed about how dirty and frayed it gets.
