Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was very stoked about this rope right out of the box. It seemed like it would be light and durable. I am about the long trad multi pitches so it was seemingly rad. I've used it about a dozen times now and my main concern is its durability. The shieth has become frayed in several places and I've already identified a core shot about two feet from the end of the rope. This means that the rope was damaged at the knot, which is scarier to me than damage from whipping over a sharp edge. Core shots at sharp edges make SENSE to me, but core shots in the knot are just a sign that the rope itself is weak. Additionally, I know three other climbers who have this rope and they have all reported the shieth breaking down quickly. On a less important note, the middle marker was completely nonexistent after a half-day of climbing. All in all, I can't say that I would recommend this rope, and I got it with pro deals for $120!

4 5

I have a double rack of C4's 0.3 - 4 and I was curious about the potential weight saving weight with ultralights, so I did some calculations. A rack of ultralights .4 - 4 is approximately 8.1 ounces lighter than the C4's, meaning that a double rack would be 16.2 (or 1 lb) less than a double rack of C4's. I decided to switch out my positron quickdraws for OZ quickdraws and OZ Alpine draws (12 total- 6 standard and 6 alpine) which cut 16.8 ounces from my rack. I considered the quick/apline draw exchange to be more worthwhile because it's rare that I take two 4's up with me, but I always take my quickdraws from extending and placing nuts. All in all it just depends how much you care about weight and what kind of climbing you like to do (wide stuff is more worth it to get in ultralights) There are the deets, up to you from here!
