Nothing special and over priced

I use the crap out of my ropes and have taken them up multiple big walls. My old edlwise(?) was wayy more durable than this rope. The petzl sheath softens up quick, and i partially exposed the core from tugging on it while belaying and it kinked into a crack. For a 10.1, its not too heavy but its sheath and #of rated falls makes it compare more to other 9.6-9.8mm ropes even for the price. Other ropes ive used ive tugged WAYYYYY harder and even jugged on a kink without that much sheath trouble. I plan on buying a Millet rope (not because of the sheath but that it doesnt get crazy kinked right before your friend says watch me) after using a 9.8 triaxel on the Salathe Wall.
