Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this rope to use as I'm beginning to trad climb and haven't been disappointed. It's not as supple as other ropes I've used but handles well enough and the sheath is extra burly. The thickness and feel of the sheath is worth the other trade-offs IMO and I'd definitely buy it again. Being new to trad I know I've made mistakes that have put extra wear on this rope but it seems to be taking it like a champ and only has a little fuzz in a few areas after 4 months of solid use.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 160 lbs
Size Purchased: 40.5

Ran 5 miles the first time I put them on including two trips up/down Stone Mountain(GA) and they were amazing. Great fit for me right out of the box (I think they run between 1/4/ - 1/2 size smaller US). No rubbing, the lacing system is neat, and the rubber bites on raw granite better than any other trail runners I've had. They don't have a rock plate so you have to be more careful that with other trail runners where you place your feet but if you slide the toe and heel protection is decent, better than my Adidas FastR. I'll have to see how they hold up but my initial ranking would put them at the top of all the trail runners I've tried. They'll be my go to dry summer hiking shoes as well.
