Been using it for a few months now. It feels great on the hand, flows through grigri like a butter. Handling is good, and I had a few good falls on it, looks perfect. Bit on the more expensive side, but when you get it, you see and feel what you spent the extra money on.
This is the second time i bought this rope due to it being so excellent to handle, and it surviving years of torture and grind against the jagged limestone of Ontario, Granite of Squamish and California, Sandstone of West Virginia and Kentucky! And chances are i will by a third one eventually, once this one is retired!
Great rope for indoor and outdoor lead climbing. Got it as my first rope and happy that it was easy to unravel and use.
The rope has great characteristics, I could not wish for more. The delivery was super fast, too!
Muy buena cuerda, muy suave, se maneja muy bien y para la longitud que tiene pesa poco. La tencion de epic tv muy buena. Gracias
