Michaelzenkaywrote a review of Edelrid Eagle Light Pro Dry Climbing Rope - 9.5mm on February 26, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
decent rope overall, I am a bit spoiled by the mammut infinity 9.5mm dry, but lets make the comparison anyways:
After climbing in EPC for a week, I got to use the two ropes side by side in our group (both practically brand new at the start of the trip)
Eagle light is quite a bit heavier (62g/m) than the infinity (59g/m). On paper thats not a big difference, but flaking the two ropes side by side you really notice the extra heft.
KINKY - Still kinky at the end of a weeklong trip, ~10 pitches/day. Below pictures show my buddy and I at a rap station on day 2 with the eagle(green) and infinity(blue) at the same stages in life. Kinks were the source of so much frustration with this rope.
Handling - I would say if the infinity handled like butter, the eagle handled like lard. It handles like a thicker rope, stiffer and not as supple as most of the 9.5s I've climbed on. Decent flow through grigri2, but it doesn't like to move well when you do that flick from taking to paying slack (via holding the cam). Rapping on atc is pretty smooth once the kinks are out.
Overall initial impressions is that it will do the job, but I'm a little underwhelmed.
