Sheath frayed exceptionally fast

I've used it several times

I have only had this rope out on a few sport climbing trips and it is more frayed than an old climbing rope. I recently had to cut out 2 meters to get rid of a flat spot and some bad fraying. I checked all my metal gear to try and find a burr or something that would cause all the premature sheath wear but that just wasn't the case. I feel safer on my 4 year old maxim rope than this thing.

Was Hoping for More

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I have climbed with this rope about 15 days and have a few initial impressions. This rope is supple, colorful, and easy to clip. Also, I love the 70 meter length (highly recommend for multi-pitch). For whatever reason, this rope knots up on me like crazy, no matter how I stack it - in or out of my rope bag. I can't help but think it is user error but my old 10.1 mm rope never did this and I haven't changed how I handle rope. Drives me crazy. It has also shown some wear a bit prematurely, nothing major but more than I would have expected. Overall, I think this rope will do the job for me, however, with how expensive it was I do kind of regret this decision and would go with a different rope in hindsight.

Nice Rope; Received Wrong Color

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I couldn't decide between this rope and one from BD; so I bought both to compare side by side. This rope feels oh-so-sweet, and I imagine it would perform great at the crag. The only problem is, I wanted the Bi-Flavin color and did not receive what I ordered. Huge disappointment, since Backcountry is usually spot-on. So I am going to try this rope again when they have the Bi-Flavin color in 70M back in stock. In the meantime, FWIW: This looks and feels like a very, very high quality rope, available to you at a nice sale price!

Quality rope

I've put it through the wringer

This rope has been my go to for several years. It feels good inn the hands, is very pliable and flexible, and does not kink or twist. The bipattern is obviously awesome for rappels. Gives a very soft catch. It has also been very durable for a soft rope, and the dry treatment helps keep the dirt out. I don't lead hard routes on it anymore (simply due to it's age), but I still use it for mellow days out. Would buy again.
