Green = Gold

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a big fan of this rope so far. I bought it largely because of the price, and I was also curious about their new eco-friendly process. I have to say that I couldn't be happier. I have now used this rope on all kinds of climbing, and it has done very well throughout everything. If you're looking for an ultra-light rope for your hard project, this probably isn't the one for you. But hey, if that's the case, what are you doing buying a 9.8 anyway, right? For what it is, a workhorse rope that will treat you well day in and day out, this rope is the business.

So far its holding up great.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this rope as a replacement for my Edelweiss Curve Arc which developed sheath damage in a very strange way (all the yellow threads blew out but the other colored threads were fine). So far it has held up well on both coarse granite (Joshua Tree), fine Granite (tahoe) and sandstone (Red Rock). Its been great.

Crappy rope - gave it away

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I hate to write a poor review of a rope where the company is trying to be environmentally responsible, but here goes: I bought this rope in August to sport climb, and climbed around a few areas in CA with it before taking it to Kentucky. I've probably climbed about 15 days on it total, with a number of different partners. Every one of my partners complained about the rope. I ended up giving it away to a guy who will bolt new routes in the Red. The rope feels sticky and stiff (doesn't feed through a gri gri well and doesn't give a nice soft catch, even when the belayer jumps). In addition the sheath started to fray pretty quickly. Plus it's heavy and doesn't pack down tightly (probably owing to the stiffness of the rope). After owning and going through 20-30 ropes in a dozen years of climbing, this is the first I've given away after only a month or two. I really want to like the rope because of the environmentally friendly aspects, but alas, I'm going to buy a new rope. Probably a Sterling or Beal.

Just picked up a second of these ropes. Take a Tusk add some eco-freindly and you've got the best rope on the market, period.

Other than price, what's the difference...

Other than price, what's the difference between this rope and the Tusk?

Some Tech Specs are missing and it's not easy to make a comparison. Does this one has a Lifetime guarantee?

Best Answer Responded on

Here are the stats for the two,transformer first:
Core with 11 inlays
40 clappers
UIAA-falls (1 strand 80 kg) 8-9
weight in g/m 64
sheat slippage in mm 0
impact force in kN 9,0
elongation with 80kg per cent 6,8
elongation at 1st drop (fall) 30
proportion of sheath per cent 38
For the Tusk:
Core with 11 inlays
40 clappers
UIAA-falls (1 strand 80 kg) 8-9
weight in g/m 64
sheat slippage in mm 0
impact force in kN 8,8
elongation with 80kg per cent 6,8
elongation at 1st drop (fall) 30
proportion of sheath per cent 38
I can't speak to the guarantee, but it is essentially the same rope as the Tusk except the sheath is made using transfer yarns, excess materials left over from the construction of their other ropes, rather than yarns that would produce a consistent color pattern. That's why the colors are assorted. Both are also superdry, which handles very nicely. I've used one of these and it is a very nice, quality rope from Mammut.

Is there a middle mark on this rope?

Is there a middle mark on this rope?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, all dynamic ropes from Mammut come with a friction resistant, coloured, middle marking. In choosing a process they made sure that a dye was used that wouldn’t weaken either the sheath or the core filaments.

Responded on

That said - the middle mark will fade almost completely over time.

Green Rope!

Great all around rope. Besides the fact that it is the only Green rope on the market. The rope is made with transfer yarns which are first quality yarns that in the dying process otherwise would be thrown out. Mammut takes these Transfer yarns and braids them into beautiful ropes. Plus they offset their carbon emissions form their rope factory by working projects around the world to build dams for Hydro power, greenhouses to grow food in remote regions etc. The rope is the same as the Tusk 9.8 with each rope having its own unique color and pattern due to the random Transfer yarns.
