The sheath becoming fuzzy is not a big concern of the rope, as long as the fibers are not becoming unwound. however the slippage and the kinks could be a concern. the question is mostly about the core. any damage to the core can make a rope unsafe to use. the best course of action if you suspect any core problem is to retire the rope no matter how old it is. the slippage could be due to the multiple elongations on the course. there are ways of making the sheath fit the core again, however they need to be taught by a rope professional for the ropes to stay safe to use with the public.

this jacket is really good. it is not too thick so you get overheated when climbing or hiking but will block the cold wind from getting to you. the pockets are raised so that when you have a harness on you can access the pockets. the fit is good too. the underarms are not too tight so when you reach for the next hand placement the jacket doesn't ride up. all in all sweet jacket.

i love the am'd carabiners. i recently bought this auto locking am'd for my reverso 3 and found that it is a not worth the extra five dollars. it get locked up about halfway open on me very often, making the ease of the one hand operation not so easy. otherwise i love that it locks automatically, makes it easy to perform the once over before climbing.
