Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Granted, this rope is thick, and kinda heavy. But I'd rather have that then worrying about it running over an edge. It handles very well, and even after 3 years of abuse it's still good. Still catches falls softly. Only concerns I have is that when you first get it is seams to wear fast, don't worry that's just the outer fuzz appearing. After that nothing really fazes it. Also after 3 years of use, mine has grown quite large (thick), and though it still squishes itself into a grigri it doesn't feed as nicely as one might like.
