John G.wrote a review of Sterling Velocity Sharma Standard Climbing Rope - 9.8mm on May 8, 2011
I had some concerns, this being my first rope, and a 9.8mm. However, as soon as I used it, I was in love with it. It is very light and easy to clip. I was so used to a 10.2mm, that the 9.8mm felt like nothing. It is also very smooth to clip in during lead climbs. I would recommend this to anyone if they are looking for a great first rope.
