Petzl Tango 8.5mm

The Petzl Tango 8.5mm is a durable climbing rope with increased stiffness, that is perfect for use during multi-pitch rock climbing. The Petzl Tango 8.5mm can be used as a twin or half rope, and maintains the consistent Petzl high standards in the way that the rope is treated, to ensure ultimate performance. The Tango has an Ultrasonic Finish, meaning that the core and sheath have been bonded together through an ultrasonic process, to keep any ends from fraying and highly increasing the overall durability of the rope. With a diameter of 8.5mm this is a versatile rope as it can be used seamlessly with many types of belay devices, and the rope middle marking enables for manoeuvres to be judged quickly. A superb rope for those bigger climbs.

A very good rope

I got my hands on the tango last week and I can say that for a rope on that price I am amazed. I bought the blue version and it turned out to be a blueish-silver amazing color finish. When you first touch the rope it feels sturdy and tough. And it is. I got it strictly for multy-pitching on the very sharp and rough Varasova Sector in Greece. Now the rope there gets through a lot of zig-zaging and rubs on the rock a lot. After 2 days of hard climbing I have to say that this rope is a beast. The signs of worn where very little to none and although it is tough at the same time it is easy to handle an rolls like a charm through belay devices etc. Now as long as the building quality, as you can expect from a Petzl product it is very very good. Bottom line, a great rope for a very good price. I will get another one for sure.
